Feleegle heels socks
I’ve written this as a plain stockinette toe-up boot or house sock to give the widest array of sizes in a speedy-to-knit winter sock. But by all means, insert ribbing or pattern stitches at will, adjusting your stitch count as necessary. I’ve also deliberately written the heel instructions as a recipe, as well as providing the numbers for this sock, so you can use it with your favourite sock pattern.
These socks are toe-up and knit in the round.
Pattern is fully written out with links to tutorials for special techniques
Sizes are finished circumferences and contain negative ease (instructions on choosing your size included in the pattern). Foot lengths are provided as guidance in the pattern but are easily adjustable and I encourage you to modify to fit at will.
