2 Toe Up Socks

Here are examples of two different toe up socks.

This boyish is made with a heel flap and some shaping on the in-step. It takes a little more work, but I like the shape better!

This girlish one is made with a simple short row heel and no shaping at the in-step. It's so much easier to make, but the instep shaping seems a little bulgy to me.... Next time I do this type of sock, I’m going to add a few decreases (shall we say “bust darts?”) at the in-step to give it some shape.

All in all, I'm not sure which construction I like better. Maybe I can make a bigger pair using each style, and try them on for fit.

Some resources I found very useful:
