    Default Itty Bitty Socks

    I have two skeins of sock yarn that don't match, so I'm making socks for Jameson. These took about four hours. And they stay on!

    I gotta say... Awwwww! Those are cute. Is that Koigu yarn? It's very pretty.

    The colors are so vivid - I knew it had to be Koigu. That's my favorite place in the yarn shop to "window shop" because I love to look at that yarn but don't have much use for knitting with it. I have a couple sets of skeins in my stash but have yet to put them on the needles.

    I would love to use Koigu, but it's out of my price range! Maybe if this one is a girl, I'll slurge!

    CUUUUTE! Is it a free pattern? If so link a girl up! What size are they? Nathalie seems to be running large for her age, my first time with a bigger-than-the-clothes-sized baby.

    I splurged for koigu a year ago, but for some reason I got two skeins that don't match. Silly me. So now they're become socks for baby.

    It's my adaptation of plain 'ol socks. My gauge is about 7 stitches per inch on size zero needles, but I knit really loosely. Try one or twos.

    Cast on 36 stitches, join, knit 11 rows k2p2
    K 1 row
    Turn, slip 1 stitch, p 17 stitches
    Work back and forth in stockinette on 18 stitches, slipping first stitch, until it's roughly square, ending on a WS row
    Slip 1, k11, k2tog, turn (should be 4 stitches left)
    Slip 1, p8, p2tog, turn (should be 4 stitches on that side too)
    Slip 1, k to one stitch before gap, k2, turn
    Slip 1, p to one stitch before gap, p2, turn
    Repeat those two rows until you've run out of stitches, ending on RS row
    Pick up and knit the slipped stitches along the edge of the heel flap.
    Knit across 18 stitches on top of foot
    Pick up and knit the slipped stitches along the other side of the heel flap.
    Knit rest of heel stitches and accross the top again
    K1, K2 tog, K to last three heel stitches, ssk (or SYTK), K1, K top 18 stitches
    Repeat previous row until back at 36 total stitches.
    Knit until bottom of foot measures about 1 inch less than total desired length
    K1, ssk, K to last three bottom stiches, k2tog, K2, ssk, K to last three top stitches, K2tog, K1
    K one round
    Repeat previous two rounds twice, then repeat just the decrease round twice, 16 stitches remaining, kitchner toe.

    The whole thing is easiest if you keep top stitches on one side of your needle, and bottoms stitches on the other side (if magic looping) or keep top stiches on one dp and bottom stitches split evenly on two dps. This keeps all your decreases on the edges of the needles.
