Who doesn't like warm, hand-knitted socks! I have been knitting socks
for my family, and thought
I would share the easy and fast pattern I have come up with!
Anne's, Dawn's, and Sara's Socks
Dark green--longer cuff. Light green, shorter cuff
These socks were knitted for my Daughter-in-law, who likes a cuff
on her socks.
And also for my daughter Annie, who wears the same size, but likes a smaller cuff.
Dawn wears a size 7 shoe, and Annie wears a 7 1/2 so this would fit someone with feet of about that size.
I am not an expert knitter, or an expert knitting pattern writer.
Just wanted to put this very easy pattern out for others!
The pattern reads as this:
longer cuff size. (shorter cuff)
Requires about one skein for the women's (medium) size.
One set of size 5 US dp needles.
Cast on 40 stitches, dividing them on 3 needles as follows: 10-20-10
Work K1P1 rib for 12 rows (6 to 10 rows) . Then, 25 rows stockinet. (15 rows)
Begin Heel Flap:
Work across first needle. Turn.
Now, working back and forth only on the stitches on the two needles with fewer stitches (combining them on one needle if you feel more comfortable) and turning the work each row:
P one row (wrong side). Slip 1, knit 1 for one row for 18 total rows
End with a wrong side row (right side facing you ready to begin).
Knit one row around.
Knit 35 rows stockinet .
Thread yarn onto needle and darn toe together.
