How would you like to be able to make your sock cuffs as long as you wish, with no worries about whether your yarn will hold out? Wouldn’t you love to be able to try on your socks as you go and make sure they will fit? What about eliminating the dreaded Kitchener graft at the end? If this all sounds right up your alley, then you are ready to go toe-up. Also, if you’ve wondered about short rows but were afraid they’d be too hard, then you are in the right place.

• Sock yarn OR worsted
• US circular or double point according to yarn
• Snow Lake Figheadh toe-up pattern
