ETA...okay, it's not a whole sock pattern. It's simply a short row, toe. Too fiddly for me even though the toes are nice with no seams.
I have some lovely soft On Your Toes bamboo yarn that just isn't cooperating when I do the usual closed cast on and start increasing, it loves to split. I'm hoping that doing it the way in the video might work better. Trial and error. The yarn may be destined for being something besides socks. I just don't have the patience to deal with it if I don't figure out an easier/better way to make a toe from it and soon.
