Top down socks with combined gusset / afterthought heel
Top down socks with shapely contrast colour toes and heels. The afterthought heels are innovatively shaped with 4 sets of decreases, to cup the base of the heel like a traditional heel turn. Stitches are increased while placing stitches on hold for the heel, so that there are enough stitches on the sole to wrap around the instep. These are then decreased as for a traditional gusset. Step by step photos are provided for removing the holding yarn and setting up the heel to insure a neat, hole free result.
