Notes

This yarn is incredible: the texture, the rich colours, the stitch definition!

Turning these into toe up, transcribing for fingering weight yarn and my narrow feet, since I want to wear them in shoes, not only as house socks.

FLK toe on 30 stitches, working foot on 60. 32 on instep pattern, 28 on sole

Added 4 stitches on each side for a mini gusset, eliminating after turning the heel. Continuing the leg with 60 stitches. 3 pattern repeats in plain stockinette in the back of the heel, 11 further all round. Might have made them longer.

They fit over my heel just so ;-)
