Alpha Stockings in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock Review by Zina Reh

A toe up pattern with a clever heel gusset. The cable design is pretty and skillfully adapted for knitting in the round. The instructions are well written. I made two modifications, eliminated the cabled stitches on the heel and altered the ribbing to make it more stretchy.
