About this pattern
Addy Socks is a toe-up pattern, with a heel-flap and gusset that does NOT require picking up any stitches, which means, no gaps! This pattern is written for sizes Newborn, on up to adult L! I have included instructions for adding a contrast heel if wanted. This is written so that you can use your own favorite toe, heel, and cuff.
The pattern is simple, and fun to work.
I started with my love for toe-up construction, then used heel-flap and gusset heel construction that does not require picking up stitches, so no gap, with a better fit.
