toes and the fit as you go contructon. Cuff down socks have
advantage of a tidy, stretchy cuff. The design in the photo
above is worked from the toe to just before the cuff, and the
cuff is worked separately; then the cuff is attached to the main
sock with combination 3-needle and frilled bind off.
To accomplish this, the cuff section and the main sock section
are put wrong sides together and one stitch is knit alternately
from the main sock and the cuff and bound off at the same
time. This results in a nice looking edge that is decorative
and gives you the best of both worlds; toe up and cuff down
with a nice decorative edge.
3-needle bind off alone would give a definite chopped look.
