  • Patent number: 4522044
    Abstract: Elastic yarn is incorporated in different manners in two circumferential sections of the ankle and arch portions of the sock to provide compressive force and support to these areas of the wearer. The elastic yarn is incorporated in spaced-apart wales of each course of the ankle and arch portions and is floated inside of plural wales in the rear half of successive courses in the ankle and lower half of the arch to form mock ribs extending around substantially the rear half of the sock. The elastic yarn is incorporated in every other wale of single alternating courses and in the remaining wales of single intervening courses in the front half of the ankle and upper half of the arch to form a diamond pattern extending around substantially the front half of the sock. By incorporating the elastic yarn in two different manners in every course, the proper amount of compressive force and support is provided on the ankle and arch of the wearer.

  • Patent number: 4520635
    Abstract: The high-splice area, heel, instep, sole ring-toe area, and toe of the present sock includes a heavy wool yarn knit in plated relationship with body yarn so that the wool yarn is exposed on the outside of these areas of the sock to provide a soft and fuzzy appearance thereto. The wool yarn also forms inwardly extending terry loops in these areas of the sock to provide a "cushion foot" and good moisture absorbency to the lower portion of the foot of the sock. Elastic yarn is incorporated in spaced-apart wales and floats inside of multiple wales to form mock ribs in the leg and instep while the elastic yarn is incorporated in alternate single wales of alternate single courses and in intervening single wales of intervening single courses of the high-splice area and sole, and ring-toe area to provide stretchability and firm support so that these areas are maintained in close engagement with the lower portion of the foot of the wearer.
