I am a total sock novice.
I have made them and I have made them several ways. I have made cuff down socks on dpns, toe-up socks on dpns, toe-up magic loop socks and now 2 socks on 2 circs cuff down. I haven’t adapted a pattern yet because I’m always focusing on the technique rather than the construction.
It seems to me that the toe-up patterns always have the wrap and turn heel. The cuff down heels always look so much nicer to me. And it seems that the majority of socks are written for cuff down socks.
My question is: Is a heel a heel for either method? Can you read through a heel pattern for a cuff down sock and adapt it for a toe-up or will toe-up patterns always have that wrap and turn look going for them?
Thanks in advance!
