Making up

With RS facing, using mattress st join the heel shaping on both sides. Then sew the side seam together and along the toes.

Do this for both the inner and the outer sock.

Then make sure the inner sock has the seam on the outside and insert into the outer sock making sure to match the seams.

Using yarn B match up the top of the inner sock to the bottom of the rib of the outer stock. Stitch into place using overstitch.
