Fit to your unique gauge!

If this is your first pair or 100th pair of socks, you are in the right place! This sock can be knit as is or embellished with a pattern of your choice. The heel construction is based on Fleegle’s “no flap heel” blog post.

If you haven’t knit socks before, you may not know what gauge you’ll get with sock yarn and small needles. If you start toe-up, don’t worry much about gauge; you will simply increase until the sock fits!

  • No picking up stitches, wrap & turn short rows, or kitchener stitch involved.
  • The heel is easy to execute, looks good, and fits well. And you can also substitute this heel on many sock patterns.
  • This recipe can be used for any weight yarn--not just fingering.

The download also includes a smart looking faux cable rib pattern.
This recipe can also be used for cuff-down socks!
