Description from knitty.com:
This toe-up short-row sock worksheet uses gauge plus a basic series of measurements to provide a custom fit.
Don't limit yourself to stockinette! Instead, select a textured rib or stitch pattern for the top of the foot and the ankle.
Just make sure that your adjusted number of stitches works with your chosen pattern.
