My own socks
Yarn: Lion Brand Magic Stripes, brown/blue pattern
Pattern: My own basic generic sock pattern, loosely based on Knitty's Universal sock pattern.
Needles: Size 3 dpn
I did these as a toe-up pattern, cast on 32 stitches with a provisional cast-on, then did the toe as a short-row toe. When the toe was completed, I continued working in the round, K4,P4, for four rows, then switched to P4, K4 for four rows. I alternated between K4P4 and P4K4 every four rows until I reached the proper length for my husband's foot, then did a short-row heel (as per the knitty pattern), then resumed the K4P4/P4K4 alternation every four rows, for 60 rounds. Then I did a K2P2 rib for twenty rounds, bound off with a circular bind-off.
