Hi my name is Annette and this is my version of a ‘Toe up’ Vanilla sock with heel and gusset shaping.

I’ve been knitting a version of this sock for so long, it had never occurred to me to write it down until a friend asked me - “What pattern do you use for your toe up socks?”
I’m sure there must have been an original pattern that I referenced all those moons ago, but I cannot remember it. However, over the years, the pattern has grown with me, adapting with my knitting ability and new techniques picked up from here and there.

Enjoy these socks. May they adapt with you to make many treasured versions.
