A classic toe-up sock with a novel how-did-you-do-that textured stitch. The Tiny Eyelet Ridge pattern stitch is quick to memorize and once learned, you can use it on any of your favorite socks, either toe-up or cuff-down.
Toe-up socks mean that you can work to exactly the length you need, and there are no worries about running out of yarn. Just divide your yarn in half before you start, and knit the first sock until you run out of the first ball!
Or, instead of using a single color, use two colors to make stripes. The pattern is easily adaptable.
