Hi All,
Can anyone direct me to a non-toe up pattern for flip-flop socks, aka 'thong socks', aka 'split toe socks'? I searched for one on the pattern page, but the link is dead.
Thanks,
UR

I found this (http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/a14D.shtm)pattern but I couldn't figure out if it was a cuff down...or toe up... you might be able to contact them and see though...:thumbsup:

I hit submit to fast...I'm still looking for others :teehee:

ETA: Looks like there is a book you might be able to check out at your local library 'Not Just More Socks'...I'm not sure if they are cuff down either..

I did find a few free ones but they are all toe up...

Thanks dustinac.....maybe this is a sign for me to learn/attempt the toe-up. I will look for the book, though, too.

:happydance: I had my doubts about trying toe up...but after I did it was so much easier than what I thought...if you have any questions just ask :thumbsup:
