This pattern was designed for the Yarniverse September 2019 subscription box.

These socks are worked from the cuff down, beginning with the German twisted cast on method. After completing the cuff, work immediately begins on the heel, using heel flap and gusset construction. From there the foot is worked and the sock is finished by grafting the toe closed using the kitchener stitch technique.
