These comfortable roll-top socks are an adventure in unusual construction: they can be knitted from the toe up or the cuff down, and they feature an "afterthought heel" worked from held stitches after the rest of the sock is completed.  To make the mirrored spiral, the color pattern is worked in the opposite direction on the second sock.
