Notes

I was looking for a simple toe-up sock pattern for my Saturday morning class and will be using these two while knitting a pair of socks for myself.
I like how the DVD sock pattern works for any gauge, but prefer the FLK heel.

Step 1: Judy’s truly magic cast-on
Step 2: Increases to number of stitches determined by size of foot and gauge (44 sts per sock for me)
Step 3: round and round I go to the heel- line of my FLK cardboard foot.
Step 3: FLK heel.
Step 4: Round and round until the cuff is long enough :)
Step 5: Bind off

DONE!

One word of advise when knitting two-at-a-time toe-up (or cuff down) socks: Always alternate the direction in which you turn your work to prevent the strands of the two balls of yarn from tangling up.
