Anatomically Correct Toes

The following chart can be used for toe-up or top-down sock construction.  Click on the chart to see a larger, downloadable, version.  I wrote this for toe-up socks, thus the M1 stitch, increasing the number of stitches to the full sock width.  This pattern also assumes that you are casting on using a circular cast method, like Judy’s magic cast on, or (my favorite) a Turkish cast on.  This type of pattern will not work with short row toes as that type of construction assumes symmetry on each side of the sock.  If you are making top down socks, simply work your k2tog stitches instead of the M1 stitches.  This chart is possibly more rows than your typical toe, so bare that in mind with whatever pattern you are working.  This pattern fits my foot perfectly, but if you want something to fit YOUR foot perfectly, here’s how to do it.  Enjoy!
