Posted on June 14, 2012 by 46746523 | 0 comments

Early announcement we are unveiling a new shopfront in the next few weeks, so look out for it!

Meanwhile, to clear stock of yarns are we will no longer carry, there is a 30% off sale till the end of June on many many items.

BACK TO THE SOCK CHANNEL

If you have come this far, then its a home run from here. Take it step by step and soon you will have a handknitted sock! 

Foot

You should have 16 st on Needle 1, 32 st on Needle 2, 16 st on Needle 3.

Knit in pattern across the 32 stitches for the top of the foot. (Needle2)

Knit in stocking stitch for sole of foot. ( Needles 1 and 3) Stocking stitch is knit every round.

Continue until the foot of the sock measures 5cm less than the length of your foot.

Decreasing toe stitches

Round 1

Needle 1: Knit to 3 stitches before Needle 2, k2tog, k1.

Needle 2: K1, k2tog, knit to 3 stitches before Needle 3, k2tog, k1.

Needle 3: k1, k2tog, knit to end.

Round 2

Knit all stitches.

Repeats rounds 1 and 2 until there are 16 stitches left on Needle 2.

Kitchener stitch the toe closed. Its not as scary as some make it seem, though it can be confusing. This link may be helpful or check out this video.

I love the Kitchener stitch seamless toes. I always finish weaving all the stitches together before adjusting each stitch to make it as even as possible on the toe.

Alternatively you can 3 needle bind off, but then you will have a ridge on the toe of your socks.

YAY! one sock done, now weave in the yarn ends and knit sock 2.
