Totally Twisty Toe-Up Tube Socks
(Written for fingering, sport and worsted weight yarn!)
Every year I make nice warm wool socks for my son, but recently his feet have been growing so much that I can’t keep up. I decided to make him tube socks, with no heel, so that they’ll fit him for more than a short time.
Knitting socks with no heels is fun! These socks feature an easy twisty rib pattern that helps the socks fit snugly and keeps you interested as you knit. Pattern includes detailed instructions and photos for the toe-up beginning.
