Umbrella Socks

This design was born from Kay’s historic dislike of toe up socks. Whatever pair she ever knitted, never fitted properly and the ribbing always flared out after casting off. Is there an answer to this conundrum? There most certainly is and these are it! 

The ‘Umbrella Socks’ are a fingering weight toe up sock pattern which includes four video tutorials. The socks fly off the needles and they fit like a dream. Finally Kay has her go to toe up sock recipe!
