These toe-up socks feature a contrasting color toe, heel and cuff edging. A simple rib pattern and gussets ensure a stretchy, comfortable fit. Although somewhat traditional looking, this pattern includes both traditional and non-traditional techniques: Judy’s Magic Cast-on, Modified Knit Front and Back increases, Shadow-Wrap short-row heel (picture tutorial included), a method of working in the gusset stitches that lies flat and works well when combining stitches in two different colors, and a choice of either Tubular or Jeny’s Surprisingly stretchy Bind-Off. Links to tutorials for all of the techniques are included in the pattern.

German short rows can easily be substituted for the shadow wrap short rows if you prefer.

Instructions are given for knitting in the round on two circular needles.

Pattern now includes an addendum for knitting these socks with different stitch counts.
