INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):


To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needles (e.g. 52 stitches) and
divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 4) = 13. In this example increase by making 1 yarn over
after each 13th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

2-COLORED FLOWER PATTERN IN ENGLISH RIB (in the round):


The ower pattern is worked in English rib as shown in diagram A.1B. The remaining stitches are worked in
stockinette stitch with the wrong side out, i.e. the stitches are purled as described in the text.
To obtain the 2-colored e ect, you work stripes with alternately 1 round o white and 1 round old pink. A.1
starts on a round with o white as described in the text. Each time you either increase or decrease in A.1
this occurs on a round with old pink.

KNITTING TIP-1:
To avoid holes in the corner of the heel when working the rst round of the leg, lift the horizontal strand
before the next stitch (in the transition between heel and the other stitches), onto the left needle and place
it twisted on needle. Work this strand together with the next stitch on the left needle.

KNITTING TIP-2:
All the numbers of stitches given while working the ower pattern in English rib do not include the yarn
overs, as the yarn overs belong to the knitted stitch. In other words, knitted stitch + yarn over count as 1
stitch.

-------------------------------------------------------

START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

SOCK - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:


The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles from the toe upwards. Toe and heel are one-
colored, foot and leg are worked in stripes. In addition there is a 2-colored ower pattern in English rib on
leg.

TOE:
Cast on 8 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm = US 1,5 and old pink. Divide the stitches to 2
stitches on each needle. Work 1 round where you knit 2 stitches in each stitch = 16 stitches. Insert 1 marker
after the rst 4 stitches on the round and 1 marker after the next 8 stitches. There are 4 stitches left on
round after the last marker and the markers sit on each side of the toe. Beginning of round = mid under
foot.
Work stockinette stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME on the rst round increase on each side of both
markers – read INCREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every round a total of 2-4-6 times
and then every 2nd round a total of 7-6-5 times = 52-56-60 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch
without further increases until the piece measures 5-5-6 cm = 2”-2”-2 3/8” from the cast-on edge. Now work
the foot as described below.

FOOT:

white and 1 round with old pink. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
When the piece measures 17-19-21 cm = 6 3/4”-7 1/2”-8 1/4” from the cast-on edge, divide the piece for the
heel as follows: Leave the middle 20-22-24 stitches on the needles (i.e. divide the stitches with 10-11-12
stitches on needles 2 and 3). Divide the remaining 32-34-36 stitches onto needles 1 and 4 with 16-17-18

stitches on each needle. Cut the strand and work heel as described below.

HEEL:
Work stockinette stitch back and forth with old pink as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there is 1 stitch left, turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Slip the rst stitch as if to purl, tighten strand and purl until there is 1 stitch left, turn
the piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Slip the rst stitch as if to knit, tighten strand and knit until there are 2 stitches left,
turn the piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Slip the rst stitch as if to purl, tighten strand and purl until there are 2 stitches left,
turn the piece.
Continue turning in the same way until there are 14-14-14 stitches left on the needle.
Continue back and forth over the heel in the same way, but now work 1 more stitch on each row instead of
1 less (both on right and wrong side as before). To avoid holes in the transition when turning, lift the
horizontal strand before the extra stitch onto the left needle and place it twisted on needle. Work this
strand together with the next stitch on the left needle (from the right side knit the strand and stitch
together, from the wrong side purl the strand and stitch together). Work like this until you have worked
over all stitches on heel. Cut the strand, insert a marker in the piece and work the leg as described below.
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

LEG:
= 52-56-60 stitches. Start mid back on the sock, i.e. between needles 1 and 4. Purl 1 round with the next
color in the stripes on the foot – read KNITTING TIP-1 and increase AT THE SAME TIME 4-0-2 stitches evenly
on this round – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 56-56-62 stitches.
Continue in the round with stripes in stockinette stitch with the wrong side out as before.
When the piece measures 3-3-4 cm = 1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/2” from the marker on the heel, work the next round
as follows (adjust so that the next round is worked with o white - stripes continue as before and the rst
round in A.1 is worked with o white): Work A.1A (= 6-6-7 purled stitches), * work A.1B (= 1 stitch), A.1C (=
10-10-11 purled stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 4 times, work A.1B (= 1 stitch) and nish with A.1D (= 5-
5-6 stitches) = 5 repeats of owers on the round. Continue this pattern – read 2-COLORED FLOWER

When the rst 6 rounds in A.1 have been worked there are 55-55-61 stitches on the needles. Continue this
pattern. When A.1 has been completed there are still 55-55-61 stitches on the needles and the piece
measures approx. 13-13-14 cm = 5 1/8”-5 1/8”-5 1/2” from the marker on the heel.
Continue with stripes and purl and increase AT THE SAME TIME 5-8-5 stitches evenly on the rst round =

60-63-66 stitches. When you have worked approx. 3-3-4 cm = 1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/2” of stripes after A.1, knit 1
round with old pink where you increase 9-9-9 stitches evenly spaced = 69-72-75 stitches. Work rib in the
round (= knit 1 /purl 2) for approx. 2½ to 3 cm = 7/8” to 1 1/8”. Loosely bind o with knit, but to avoid the
bind-o edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after each 6th stitch (yarn overs bind o as normal
stitches). The leg measures approx. 19-19-21 cm = 7 1/2”-7 1/2”-8 1/4” from the bind-o edge down to heel.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew hole at the tip of the toe.

Work the other sock the same way.
