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!
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
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.
Knit all stitches.
Repeats rounds 1 and 2 until there are 16 stitches left on Needle 2.
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.
Then wear with panache!
