Sideways Sock

Here's one finished TIGHT FITTING sideways sock that's knit flat and sewn up the back - quite a struggle to get the garter st cuff over the heel.

Confetti sock yarn
2.5mm needles
Gauge: 8sts 12 rows
Opal Sideways socks (eta NB: original link no longer works, use this one. I don't know if Opal Hundertwasser sock yarn still has the pattern, in German, on the inside of the ball band.)
Changes to pattern;
- shortened length, CO 120 sts; cuff-24sts, leg-36sts, heel-28sts, foot-32sts
- added rows, 80 rows total, not enough
- regular stockinette st toe, picked up 64sts, dec to 24sts, kitchener st to close
... fits a ladies size 5 1/2-6 1/2.
