I made one sock...........and it didn't fit!
So I started another one, slightly larger and worked the sock from the top down rather than toe up.................that didn't fit either!
In my despair I had a chat with Joy; the problem seemed to be Alex's heels. The kid has major skinny legs, wide feet and almost abnormal heels, I tell ya!
So we decided I would work a top down sock with a stretchier top, garter stitch short row heel and a 2x2 rib.
Here is the pattern for anyone else with abnormal heels!
Cast on 99 stitches.
Work one round: *k3, p2, k2, p2, rep from * to end
Work next round: *k2tog, p2, k2, p2, rep from * to end. 88 sts.
Work in 2x2 rib until desired length.
Work a short row garter stitch heel.
Work foot of sock with st-st on sole and 2x2 rib on top. Work preferred toe.
Here are the socks!
