Toe-Up Wonderful Fitting Socks!

from Route 45
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Toe-Up Wonderful Fitting Socks!

Toe-Up Wonderful Fitting Socks!

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round on double pointed needles
  • knit
  • purl
  • k1tbl - knit 1 stitch through the back of the loop

Pattern Description:

I've never been satisfied with the sock instructions in commercial pattern books. They would always come out too bulky, and although they were comfortable as slippers, I wanted socks I could wear all day with shoes!!!

These are seamless (nothing to irritate those toesies), hug the feet and ankles, do not fall down, and I just love wearing them!!! Once you knit a pair, the second, third and so-forth pairs will be a piece of cake!!

I used Knit Picks Stroll Sock yarn for the socks pictured, but the Patons sock yarns also work well.

Although the pattern states these are sized to fit women, there is no reason you cannot knit a longer or shorter sock from the toes to the ankle bone, adjusting to fit most foot sizes. What is so nice about toe up socks is that you can try them on as you knit (do have at least three needles inserted into your live sts before trying to fit them over a foot though; two needles just won't work - I know; I broke a bamboo needle attempting it!!)

Gauge:

6 sts and 10 rounds = 1 inch in stockinette st.
10 sts and 8.5 rounds = 1 inch in twisted knit rib st.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • will vary according to foot length; the ribbing pattern in the sock makes it very stretchy

Materials:

  • 2 skeins sock yarn - each skein at least 166 yds or more
  • U.S. Size 0 double pointed needles

You Will Also Need:

  • Row counter (keep track to make both socks even!!)
  • Blunt needle
