Toe-Up Sock Calculator

One of the great things about toe-up socks is that you can try them on as you go! The directions and patterns here call for working what is called a “short-row” heel, rather than a heel flap. However, heels for toe-up socks can be worked in many other ways as well, just as with cuff-down socks. You may want to explore other options and plug them into these patterns.

The yardage amount provided by the online calculator assumes that you are crocheting mid-calf-length socks. If you are working ankle socks or knee socks, or planning a border at the top of the socks, refer to Calculating Yardage for Cuff-Down Socks on page 186 for advice on how to adjust your formula.
