Math4Knitters: Dyad Socks - I wanted to explore the easiest way I know to make a two-color sock: one color for the heel and toe, and another for the rest of the sock. I was also eager to use a band heel and a toe to match. In Sock Architecture, they are worked both from the top down and the toe up in five sizes, plus a plug-in-your numbers size.
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. For some reason, no matter what method I tried, I had gaptastic heels. I finally discovered a short row method that makes perfect heels. It is based on slipping a wrapped stitch and an unwrapped stitch and smushing the heck out of the stitches that I was reactivating.
