I have come across a sock pattern that makes the gusset first and the heel second. I love it. It is easy and doesn't create holes. I am having difficultly though with scaling the pattern. I dunno how to do this. The pattern is written for size 0 needles.
Oh, and the pattern is in the knitting simple magazine on page 78. I am sorry, I don't know the issue.
Any one have any other sock patterns that knit the gusset first??
My digital camera broke. I will have to see if I can get a friend to take a picture. I made a pair of baby socks using the pattern on size 2 needles. I made them for my one year old. They are still a bit big as I didn't have the right size needles.
They are really cute. I used self-striping fair-isle sockotta yarn.
