Named for my favorite John Prine song, these socks are an easy toe-up sock pattern with a Strong Heel. I prefer this heel to a standard short row heel because it allows room for my high arches. The other benefit is that the heel turn is akin to that of a flap heel sock except that there is no heel flap or picking up stitches. The pattern is written needle neutral, so use whichever sock method you like.
