There is now an updated version of this pattern with a full heel flap and improved shaping! I will leave this previous version up for those who prefer a wrap & turn heel, but if you would like to check out the new version (which is still free!) check out: Skimmer Socks Revisited

Finally, a no-show sock for all women’s sizes! I went in search of one and found that there was a terrible lack of good no-show sock patterns in more than one size. This pattern can handle all women’s foot sizes and could easily be used for men as well! The socks are seamless and easily adapted to any size foot. They also feature a tall ribbing band at the back of the heel, to protect feet from blisters.
