Columbia Child's Sock

This sock is from a book published by the Columbia Yarn Company in 1936. It is one of the earliest examples of what we now think of as standard cuff down sock sock. The heel turn calls for the same construction (knitting/purling across the gap) that we currently use, although other designs published in the same era usually call for a short row "wrap and turn" construction.
