Socks by the Heel pattern

I’ve reviewed and read this pattern several times. It is a very clever and well explained construction for hand knitting socks. It is well written and I look forward to casting on a pair after the holidays.

Quite a looker in the right yarn

I am always on the pattern pages looking for new ways to make socks more interesting. This pattern does just that and from what I read on project pages on Ravelry, they not only look nice but they actually fit well, too. Did I mention that the pattern is free? Win-win.
