The “Faux Heel Flap” Toe-Up Sock pattern is an easy intermediate sock pattern written for Magic Loop.

It has a fake heel “flap” that is knit in one piece with the rest of the toe-up sock. This means you can add heel details like the Eye-of-the-Partridge stitch.

It also includes adjustments for high insteps or arches.

Incidentally, this is the most popular pattern on my site, along with the Basic Fingering-Weight Sock For Magic Loop. >Over 800 projects , rated 4.5 stars.
