WATERCOLOR SOCK

MATERIAL

YARN = WATERCOLOR SOCK by LAINES DU NORD
CIRCULAR NEEDLES = 2.75 mm and 3 mm points, thin and flexible 30 cm cable
OTHERS = darning needle, pins, scissors, stitch marker

SAMPLE

10 x 10 cm = 30 sts. and 40 sts. in stocking st. using 2.75 mm needles.

ABBREVIATIONS

r. = row(s) / round(s)
st.(s) = stitch(es)
k = knit
yo = yarn over
tog. = together
rep. = repeat
foll. = follow(ing)
k-tbl = knit through back loop

NOTES

Begin from point and cont. to rib 1/1 band of top piece. To simplify the pattern, we call “needle” every point of circular needle.

SKILL LEVEL: Experienced

MEASURES

Suit for 39/40-foot size

POINTS USED

Stocking stitch, stocking stitch in short rows (German technique), rib 1/1

INSTRUCTIONS

Point cast-on

Use the needles with 2.75 mm points.

Shape a small loop and place it on one needle, then place one needle on the second one; keep needle with the loop beneath the other one.

Using the tail, cast-on 12 sts. on both needles: wrap yarn 12 times (from outside to inside) around 2 needles. At last, using the index finger, grip last wrapping and unthread (forward) the needle below gently (the sts. are on the cable), then using this needle and yarn, knit 12 sts. into the loops of needle below; to simplify the sliding of the sts., work them loosely. Pull the cable gently and place the needle with 12 knitted sts. under needle with 12 loops.

Unthread the needle forward (leaving k12 on cable) and use it to knit 12 sts. of needle above. Pair 2 needles again. There are k12 on each needle.

From next r., on both sides, work the increases. Always check the yarn position; it must be on lower needle.

2nd r.: unthread the lower needle forward and start working the sts. of needle above. Always work the increases after first st. and before last st., then k1, yo, k10, yo, k1. Pull the cable to align the needles, turn them placing the knitted st. and working yarn under the other needle, then unthread the lower needle forward and k1, yo, k10, yo, k1 on needle above. [= 28 sts.]

3rd r.: work all sts. of both needles in knit st. and 4 yo in knit st. through back loop.

From 4th to 15th r.: work like 2nd and 3rd r., until there are 52 sts., after working 15th r. (= 4 increases every 2 r. 6 times).

Upper part and sole of sock

Match the sts. placing the needle with yarn behind the other needle, unthread the back needle and start working all sts. of front needle.

From 16th to 70th r. (13 cm): work in stocking st. the same number of sts. (26 sts. on each needle).

From next r., to widen the main part of sock, before heel shaping, start the increases as follow:

71st r.: k26 on 1st needle, and on 2nd needle k1, yo, k24, yo, k1 [54 sts.]

72nd r.: knit all sts. and 2 yo in k-tbl.

73rd r.: k26 on 1st needle, and on 2nd needle k1, yo, k1 until last st., then yo and k1 in last st.

74th r.: knit all sts. and 2 yo in k-tbl.

From 75th to 94th r.: rep. 73rd and 74th r. 9 times. [at the end of 74th r., there are 26 sts. on 1st needle and 52 sts. on 2nd needle.]

The 26 sts. shape the top part of the sock and 52 sts. shape the sides and sole of sock. For heel shaping, cont. working 26 central sts. (of the 52 sts.-group) and leave the rem. sts. Place one stitch marker in 1st and 26th st. of heel.

Heel

Work 26 sts. of heel in stocking st. and short row technique (14 rows); at the end there are 12 sts. (like at beg. of the point). Using 3 mm points, work 26 sts. in stocking st. (14 rows); across 1st row, work on 7 sts. of first side in short row, on rem. 12 sts. of the heel and on 7 sts. of second side in short rows (= 26 sts.)

Cont. working these 26 sts. (14 rows) and across the pattern, at beg. and end of every needle join at edge sts. you have left at the end of 94th r.: insert the needle into first (or last) st. of heel, then insert it into 1st st. (or last) unworked st. of the sts. you have left across 94th r., then work 2 sts. tog. Joining.

After joining the side edges of the heel at first and last 13 sts. you haven’t work across 94th r., start working in r., using 2.75 mm points.

Leg

Work 52 sts. in stocking st. (26 sts. on 1st needle and 26 sts. on 2nd needle) x 102 r., (25 cm approx.)

Band

Using 3 mm points work 30 r. rib 1/1(8.5 cm approx.= At last bind off all sts.
