  • Patent number: 4282727
    Abstract: The exposed welt of a footlet-type sock is divided by knit construction into a rear portion and a front portion. The rear portion, which is substantially the rear half, is of a substantially freely and outwardly rolled construction. The rolled rear portion is not tacked down and encircles the lower ankle area when emplaced on the foot. The remainder or front portion includes an upper edge which is tacked down in a controlled folded construction. The rear portion is thus left free to roll upon itself into a relatively heavy, thick mass of material. The front portion, on the other hand is folded across the instep of the wearer minimizing the thickness of material beneath the shoe tongue. The rear half is a knitted fabric formed with a combination of body yarn and elastic yarn. The elastic yarn forms the backing fabric for the body yarn, which itself is formed into terry loops.

  • Patent number: 3990115
    Abstract: A cuffless sock is provided which has a permanently rolled top portion adapted to encircle the lower ankle area of the wearer and which is knitted in such a way that the rolled top portion has an inherent tendency to roll upon itself. The rolled top portion is tacked to the body portion of the sock at spaced apart points at the sides of the foot receiving opening to hold the top portion in its rolled condition while permitting the untacked front and rear portions of the top to conform to varying configurations and heights of the upper edge of different shoes with which the sock is to be worn. The front and rear portions of the rolled top are preferably provided with terry loops while the opposite side portions are devoid of terry loops to be substantially smaller than the front and rear rolled top portions.
