Cable Runner Socks
These socks where designed using the magic loop method. Also for you to be able to use whatever toe and heel you would like to use. They can be top down or toe up. The only difference on that is the way the cables end up running.
NOTE ABOUT ARRANGING STITCHES:
Since I designed this for magic loop the stitches will be arranged 36 stitches on each needle. The stitches I designate as the top stitches will be the top of the foot where the design will be worked. The stitches I designate for the bottom will be the bottom of the foot with no design worked as well as these being the stitches you will work the heel on. After the heel stitches are prepared for the after thought heel (or whatever heel you use) the stitches will all be combined into the leg and cuff. The design will then be worked on both top and bottom needle stitches.
GAUGE: 11 rows & 8 sttiches in 1 inch.

You will be starting with NEEDLE1 which are the top stitches. The next needle will be NEEDLE2 which are the bottom stitches. Mark this however you want if needed. After Round 5 you will be able to tell which needle has which stitches without a marker.
The Heel - Preparing for the Afterthought Heel.
Once you have gotten the foot of your sock to the desired length it is time to add the heel. Here is what I did to add the after thought heel.
You will be working the design on both needles though they will still be NEEDLE1 and NEEDLE2. I will restart the pattern from Round 1. If this is not where you added the heel on start from the Round after you did the heel – EXAMPLE: you added the heel on round 10 so the cuff would start at Round 11.
Chart for this is at the end of the pattern!
Round 1: NEEDLE1; K2, [P2, K4] 5 times, P2, K2 NEEDLE2: K2, [P2, K4] 5 times, P2, K2
Finally Adding The Heel
At this point all you have to do is add your heel if you chose not to work it before. I did this & did the after thought heel. This is the time to add the after thought heel - or your heel of choice. https://www.dummies.com/crafts/knitting/knitting-projects/how-to-knit-an-afterthought-heel/
