Don't Ask Y Socks
Toe up, unisex socks worked in medium to heavy fingering weight yarn. This Japanese stitch pattern has very minimal stretch and to compensate, extra stitches are added both during the heel turn and before working the heel flap.
Written to be worked on two circular needles, the pattern can easily be worked on dpns or magic loop. This pattern includes both charts and written instructions.
