I thought I will never learn to do a split-toe socks but I managed to made the first pair and wrote the pattern simultaneously

He is the finish product




Pattern :

For the Cuff :
- Cast on 40 stitch on a circular needle

- long tail cast on
- pull out one side 
- divide the stitch into 2 equally
- bring it forward to knit
- pull the side with the working yarn

- 2 rounds of black yarn (K2P2 rib)
- K2(white yarn), P2(black yarn)
- 2 rounds of black yarn(K2P2 rib)
- K2(white yarn), P2(black yarn)
- 2 rounds of black yarn(K2P2 rib)
- 2 rounds of white yarn(K2P2 rib)
- K2(white yarn), P2(black yarn)
- 2 rounds of black yarn(K2P2 rib)
- K2(white yarn), P2(black yarn)
- 4 rounds of black yarn(K2P2 rib)

- Knit all (white yarn)


For the Heal Flap:
We have to knit on the 20 stitches (on one side )
<!--[if !supportLists]
-          - 1. Slip 1, Knit 1
-         -  2. Purl 
      - Repeat step 1 and 2, 11 times
-     - Slip 1, Knit 1
    For the Heal turning:
    - we continue working on the same piece (heal flap)
    - Step 1. - Purl 12, P2tog, P1, turn
    - Step 2. - Slip 1, K5, SSK, K1, turn
    - Repeat step 1 and 2 till only 12 stitch are left ( remember we reduce te stitches to 12 from 20 at this point)

    For the Gusset:
   - With the same needle where we have the 12 stitches, we pick up 13 stitches on the side as in the image below - Now we will have 25 stitch on this needle (12+13 =25)

     Now we have to knit the side which we left (the other side) when we started the heal flap
             - Knit 20 and then pick up 13 stitches. So, on the other side we have 33 stitches

    * But now to have to divide the stitches equally on both side and place marker at the area where we have to do the decreasing (refer the image below)
           * Now you should have 29 stitches on each side


  Step 1.  - K16, K2tog, K, Marker, K10, Marker, SSK, K17
               - Knit All




  Step 2.  - K15, K2tog, K, Marker, K10, Marker, SSK, K16
               - Knit All

SStep 3.  - K14, K2tog, K, Marker, K10, Marker, SSK, K15
               - Knit All
 
SStep 4.  - K13, K2tog, K, Marker, K10, Marker, SSK, K14
               - Knit All


SStep 5.  - K12, K2tog, K, Marker, K10, Marker, SSK, K13
               - Knit All

  Change to black color yarn

SStep 6.  - K11, K2tog, K, Marker, K10, Marker, SSK, K12
               - Knit All

SStep 7.  - K10, K2tog, K, Marker, K10, Marker, SSK, K11
               - Knit All

   Change to White and start knitting for the foot (Here keep knitting the round till you get your desired length)


     For my  socks, I did the following round
     - 1 round of white, all knit
     - 4 rounds of light blue, all knit
     - 5 rounds of white, all knit
     - 3 rounds of yellow, all knit
     - 1 round of mix (1 yellow, 1 dark green)
-    - 3 rounds of yellow, all knit
     - 1 round of mix (1 yellow, 1 dark green)
-    - 3 rounds of yellow, all knit
     - 1 round of mix (1 yellow, 1 dark green)
-    - 3 rounds of yellow, all knit 
    - 5 rounds of white, all knit
    - 6 rounds of pink, all knit
     - 4 rounds of white, all knit


 
   At this stage we will have 44 stitch on our needle

   For the left Toe :

    - To make it clear for my viewer, I have shot the below image of the sock from the top as if to wear (this view help us understand where we want to have the big toe for left or for right)


   We will start knitting where we have our marker now in the circle area in the above image for the big toe
     - Step 1 : - Knit 8, cast on 4 by using back loop method, K8 - We will have 20 stitches now for the big toe. Here I am using DPN instead of circular needle (the remaining stitches, held in a wasted yarn)

     - Continue knitting till the length is a little shorter than your toe. In my case I did 14 rounds of Step 1
   Then we will have start decreasing to close the toe
     - K3, K2tog all round
     - K2, K2tog all round
     - K, K2tog all round
     - K2tog all round and finish with needle

   For the left remaining toes : 
    We have to now work on the stitch which was held in the wasted yarn while we were doing the big toe
     - Knit 28 stitches and then pick up 4 next to the big toe to close the gap = 32 stitches
     - Knit 3 rounds - all knit

    We will have decreasing at the place where we have this 2nd marker which is circle in green in the above image
    - from the first marker, we will count
     - K13, K2tog, K, Marker, K, SSK, K13
     - Knit all
     - K12, K2tog, K, Marker, K, SSK, K12
     - Knit all
     - K11, K2tog, K, Marker, K, SSK, K11
     - Knit all
     - K10, K2tog, K, Marker, K, SSK, K10
     - Knit all
      - K9, K2tog, K, Marker, K, SSK, K9
     - Knit all

    Close it with Kitchener stitch :)
 
Refer the image above for the right toe and follow the pattern similarly as of Left Toe
