Miss Margaret Socks. The heel on this is my favorite part. That and the way the knit ribbing drizzles into the spiraling stitches. Also, the decorated arch detail is in full force here. Must get away from knitting all sample socks in pink. Hand knit sock pattern by Katie Franceschi
Knitted Toe Up Sock Heel Tutorial - One of the biggest issues I’ve had with knitting toe up socks is dealing with gaps in the heels.
