Yarn: Worsted weight yarn.
Needles: 4 double pointed 4.00 mm needles.
Size: Men's shoe size 9 (10 to 11 inch foot)
Gauge - 5 Knit sts = 1 inch
Cast 14 sts loosely on each of the 3 needles (total 42 sts) Or, cast 42 sts loosely on one needle, then divide to 14 on three needles.
I used two colors, but you can do it all in one color. Where I used two colors I will show where to make the color changes.
RNDS 1 to 4 - With Main Color, K1, P1 to end of Rnd.
It's easier to use stitch markers on every 10th Rnd so you don't have to count Rnds over and over. I like to use a different color of yarn (about 4 or 5 inches long) as a stitch marker and knit it with the main color for a couple stitches.
Heel (Change to 2nd color here)
Row 1 - K to end of row, turn. (22 sts)
On the next needle after the heel that had 10 sts unworked, pick up 16 more stitches along
the edge of the heel row for a total of 26 sts. (See photo below)
With your 4th needle pick up 16 more stitches along heel edge after the 10 unworked sts
on the other needle. (See photo below)
With the Main Color where you left off before starting the heel, knit the 16 sts you just picked up onto the 4th needle.
Continue with Main Color as follows for foot of sock:
Change to 2nd Color here. I didn't think it was necessary to put the
slashes for each needle here. Towards the end of the Rnds, you will
have to move a st from one needle onto another needle so you can
knit two together.
Put yarn on a darning needle and sew through each of the remaining sts on the needles. Pull tight to close up toe end and sew to fasten.
