So, I made those awesome socks by modifying the Turkish Origami sock pattern. I tried making a pair of socks for OH using a toe-up method and so far they're completely too big. So I was wondering if there was a way to use the Turkish Origami pattern since it's easier to do with measurements, but instead of seaming it up afterwards, seam it as it's worked. Like, after making the bottom of the foot, when doing the top of the foot, use a slip stitch or something to attach it to the bottom as I work. That way there's no whip stitch and there are less ends to work in. Is that possible or am I absolutely crazy?

I think I know the pattern you're talking about (did I answer another question about that here, maybe from you? I can't find any of my posts Sad  ). Just to be sure I've got this right - Are you thinking of making two pieces - one top and one bottom - and then sewing them together? If you are then I think seaming as you go might help, as long as you use a provisional seam stitch that you could remove if the size is wrong and you have to redo anything. The only problem I can see is that you'd have to have both sides finished before you could check the size. But if you work both at the same time that might cut back on the amount of ripping and redoing you'd have; just check each part - toe, foot, heel, etc. - as you finish it.

The one thing I would say is, if you need to redo any part I think it would be best to redo both sides (top *and* bottom). Otherwise your sock might not fit right.

I hope that makes sense, and I hope it helps. I think you're being really creative with revising this pattern to fit what you want to do, and I hope it turns out well for you.

I asked the same question on Ravelry as well, since I wasn't getting any responses here. I was thinking of essentially doing a short row heel, crocheting the bottom of the foot, short row toe, and then each row of the top of the foot I would join to the bottom of the foot. However, I finally was able to figure out how to make her socks fit right making them toe up, so I didn't need it anyways.
