CONSTRUCTION
These socks are knitted one at a time from cuff to toe. The cuff and leg are worked in the round. Next, the heel is worked flat using the heel flap method. You will then pick up stitches along the heel flap to continue working the foot in the round. After working the foot, you will work decreases to shape the toes. A contrast colour is used for the cuff, heel flap and toes. The colours are changed using a jogless stripe method.
