I love finding clever ways to play with the typical components of a toe-up or top-down sock. The gusset is one element that stands out from the rest of the sock, and many sock knitters dread this part.

This sock embraces the gusset as a design feature and is actually the highlight of this footwear! Working from the toe-up, twisted ribbing cuts its way through stockinette to the top of the instep where the lace gusset is inserted. Yarnovers without matching decreases create an expanding gusset on the top of the foot, rather than hidden along the sides. After the heel, the lace works its way seamlessly up the leg of the sock, perfectly matching the unique gusset.

It’s an entertaining knit that will keep you on your toes and have you showing off a gusset that is hidden in Plain Sight!
