Description

Your Customized 4ply Sock Knitting Pattern

Tension

Approximately 28 stitches and 36 rows per 10cm.

Materials

100g of 4ply weight sock yarn, and a set of double pointed 2.5mm knitting needles.

Glossary

P = Purl
K = Knit
S = Slip stitch from left to right needle without working
K2tog = Knit 2 stitches together
P2tog = Purl 2 stitches together
SK2tog = Slip 2 stitches knitwise from the left needle to the right needle, then knit those 2 stitches together on the right needle.

Start

Cast on stitches, and arrange them over 3 double pointed 2.5mm needles, placing a marker between the first and last stitches.

Work 0 rounds in K1 P1 rib, then knit a further 0 rounds, or until the cuff of the sock is the depth you want it to be.

Work the short row heel

You will work the heel back and forth, not in the round,on half the total number of stitches you cast-on.

  • Knit -1 stitches, then bring the yarn forward as if to purl, then slip the next stitch from the left to the right needle, then take the yarn backward again as if to knit, then slip the stitch you just wrapped back onto the left needle without knitting it, then turn your work around to work back the other way.
  • Purl to one stitch before the end of round marker, then take the yarn backward as if to knit, the slip the next stitch from the left to the right needle, then bring the yarn forward again as if to purl, then slip the stitch you just wrapped back onto the left needle without purling it, then turn your work.

Then, continue as follows:

  1. Knit to one stitch before the stitch you last wrapped, then bring the yarn forward as if to purl, then slip a stitch from the left to the right needle, then take the yarn backward again as if to knit, then slip the stitch you just wrapped back onto the left needle without knitting it, then turn your work.
  2. Purl to one stitch before the stitch you last wrapped, then take the yarn backward as if to knit, then slip a stitch from the left to the right needle, then bring the yarn forward again as if to purl, then slip the stitch you just wrapped back onto the left needle without purling it, then turn your work.

Continue with these two steps you have wrapped -1 heel stitches in this way, and have 1 left unwrapped, ending with a row 2. You will then work the other half of the heel as follows:

  1. Knit up to the stitch you last wrapped, then knit that stitch and its wrap together, then turn your work.
  2. Purl up to the stitch you last wrapped, then purl that stitch and its wrap together, then turn your work.

Continue with these 2 steps until you have reincorporated all the wrapped stitches from the heel back into the live knitting.

Complete the body of the sock

Continue without decreasing for approximately -3 rounds. You can adjust the length at this point by knitting more/fewer rounds here, depending on how your tension is working out, & how snug you like your socks to be, and bearing in mind that the toe you will knit will be approximately 0 cm deep.

Shape the toe

You should still have your start-of-round and mid-round markers in place from when you shaped the heel. That is, a marker at the beginning of the round (the side of the sock) and a marker after 0 stitches (the other side of the sock) and stitches in total.

    • K1, S2K2tog.

    • Knit up to 3 stitches before the mid-round marker,then K2tog, K1.
    • K1, S2K2tog.
    • Knit up to 3 stitches before the start/end of round marker, then K2tog, K1.

  1. (S1 Purlwise, K1), repeat to the end of the round without decreasing.

Repeat these 2 rounds until -8 stitches remain.

Arrange the remaining -8 stitches (a set of -4 stitches between each set of markers), so that the -4 stitches from between each set of markers are each on a separate double pointed needle, then graft the stitches together (see below for grafting instructions).

Knit another sock the same.

Ready to wear!
