The under side of the foot (toe up method) shows the normal stripe pattern.
Unfortunately, I didn't take a pic of the sock before I was ready to turn the heel. Hee, Haw! The slip stitch pattern shortens up the length and made the toe end curl up! The bottom of the sock was a good inch longer than the top at that point. I should have seen that coming sooner but chose to not pay attention. Just knit, knit, knit, happy as a clam. After I stopped laughing I ripped back to toe and started again. Plain vanilla self striping sock. And yes, the pattern would work fine for the all around leg area. It would be quite squooshy. Why didn't I? Who knows.
