Five Part Socks with Tab Toe

I knitted the sock without an ankle to made it into a house slipper.
This is my newest pattern -  Five Part Socks with Tab Toe - that starts from the toe-up with 5 double pointed needles and does not have arch shaping.
Here is the Ravelry link to download the pattern for free download now

The tab toe. 
The foot is knit without arch shaping. 
A simple gusset.
A simple short row heel and the cuff knit in a contrasting colour.

Picking up the back bumps of the cuff to knit and cast-off the facing.

Knitting the picked up and live stitch together.

Casting off loosely.

Half way through the cuff facing finishing.

Finished on the wrong side.

  1. I love the socks, esp. that saffron...When I've tried to knit socks, I realize my hands are all thumbs. But lovely to see yours...
