These gender neutral socks are knit from the bottom up (toe up) and the slanting stitch pattern is created without the use of cables. The toe is shaped using wrap and turn short rows. The heel is a flap-free, gusset heel, similar to the Fleegle heel.
This pattern is written in needle neutral terms and can be worked on dpns or with the magic loop method on long circular needles.
The stitch pattern has both charted and written instructions.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
