I believe it's like straight tubular knitting, that is, you knit a tube on straight needles by knitting every other stitch going one way and the alternative ones going the other. It's kind of like knitting 2 socks at once, one inside the other, where you do the same thing, but from different skeins and in the round. One problem is that the description of "straight tubular knitting" is my own made-up thing-- I don't know what it's really called, so I don't know how to search for it.
But Sultana, let me ask you this: Are you wanting to learn this because it's new technique you're interested in, or is are you trying to make something that another technique might also accomplish?
I think Mike was trying to design socks knit this way not too long ago - I think it was Mike.
that method is also how the head of Lion Brand's bunny blanket buddy is made. Confused the heck out of me the first time I made one. Kept slipping the wrong stitch, knitting the wrong stitch and closing up the head - mostly cuase I didn't understand the end result would be a short tube making the stuffable head. http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/pat...=bunny+blanket

The link you provided for those short socks seems to come with the directions for how to do the flat fold knitting. Probably worth the $2 to get the pattern from her and then you can use the technique to do other things as well, including your own designs.
