Alternate Socks


Sometimes, simple socks are the best. These toe up socks are easy to make with calf increases that let you keep knitting for as long or as little as you want.

 Version 1 of these socks uses a different color for each toe and heel. Version 2 starts with the same color which makes the cuffs longer by several inches. So, for the tallest socks, follow the directions for Version 2.
