These toe-up socks begin with Judy’s Magic Cast On and combine a beautiful balance of simple cables and slipped stitches for a wonderfully easy yet fun design. No stitches need to be picked up for the slipped-stitch heel flap.
The pattern stitch works equally well for solid, semi-solid, self-striping and many variegated sock yarns.Pattern Notes
Each size has its own chart with written directions for the patterned portions of the socks. The central cable is mirrored for the second sock.Construction Notes
Toe increases are worked on either side of the central cable.
Once increases for the gusset have been completed, the heel cap is worked leading into a reinforced heel flap; no need to pick up stitches. The heel cap involves working short rows.
A narrow ribbing is worked at the cuff.
