Leaf sock pattern

I want to design my own socks and I have the yarn and the sensational knitted socks books and wanted to use a leaf or fern pattern out of 365 knitting stitches a year perpetual calendar book either battern from Jan 30 or from Nov 28 on the socks and I’d be doing top down (don’t know how to do toe up). My question is if I follow the pattern then it would appear up side down on the socks. But could I just do a reverse of the pattern? would it work? are there any tricks in doing this? please help, thanks.
