Sock recipe for plainish toe-up socks

The slip stitch lines in this recipe will give your socks a beautifully elegant touch. They work well to break up those variegated yarns that look lovely in the skein but sometimes knit up less elegantly.

This is not a whole sock pattern, but rather a recipe to be supplemented with your favourite toe and heel. I prefer using short-row toe and heel constructions. A fabulous one can be bought on Ravelry for US $1.00 from the Sox Therapist:

This is a recipe for making socks which requires some knowledge on sock construction and your preferred sizing.
Some hints on sizing are given, based on my gauge and sock size.

This is purely for demonstrating how to create the stitch, please refer to the recipe for the actual stitch pattern!
