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

These socks are knit from the toe-up, beginning with Judy’s Magic Cast-on. After completing the toe, work begins on the instep, and then a gusseted heel follows. From there, a short cuff is worked. The sock is finished with a stretchy bind-off.
