Details and construction

Canvas footies can be used as ‘no-show’ socks or house slippers. The pattern also includes two options: plain stockinette or with textured print on the top of the toe.

The footies are knit toe-up, first in the round (to the end of the toe), then flat. Start with Judy’s Magic Cast On, increase for the toe, then shape the opening with short rows. Continue working the sole flat up to gusset increases and work the heel with short rows. Finish by trimming the opening with I-cord bind off and reinforce with a crochet chain.
