Gee, there are so many ways of making the toes for socks that you knit. This page is to keep track of the various kinds of toes options that exist for socks knitters.
I generally like to knot toe-up socks. That means that the toe is the first thing that I knit (and are knit narrow to wide). Obviously, these toes techniques will be different than cuff-doen toes which are knit last and are knit from wide to narrow.
