This sock is built on a easily remembered 4 stitch, 4 row pattern repeat that works up the top of the foot, and up the whole leg. The use of slipped stitches means this fabric has a nice, fitted and cozy feel, that still stretches to accommodate everything a good pair of socks should!
I am a toe-up sock knitter. There are lots of reasons why I made the switch to toe up socks after knitting a few pairs of cuff down socks but the main reason is pretty straightforward. I, and most of the people I knit socks for, have big feet.
