Upside-Down Heel Sock Pattern
The Upside Down Heel Sock is a fun, basic sock pattern that allows you to put reinforcing thread in the bottom of the heel instead of the back of the heel! This provides better wear on the contact point of the heel, as well as a little more cushion so they’ll last longer and be more comfortable than other socks. Bonus: you can add some reinforcing thread to the toes for additional strength and comfort also!
