These socks are an adventure in nontraditional construction. The socks are worked lengthwise, beginning with the center back leg. One side is worked with short rows to accommodate the calf. Then foundation stitches are added for the instep; the instep and front of the leg are worked at the same time. The last part of the leg is worked around to the back, which is seamed with a slip stitch. For the heel, stitches are worked opposite the instep and the heel is worked downward and turned. The gusset and foot are worked in rows, joining to the instep as the work progresses. The toe is finished in the round.
