Legend for pattern:

| = Knit

-- = Purl

 

Ribbing and Leg:

 

Cast on 64 stitches. Join in a ring being careful not to twist. Mark join as the beginning of the round and center of heel. Divide stitches over 2 needles (32, 32) Select your desired ribbing pattern and knit circularly for approximately 2 inches. Beginning with Needle 1 and selected motif, knit leg stitches until desired leg height is reached.

The pictured sock used the legend reversed (-- = K, -- = P). The top ribbing, heel and toe were done with a contrasting color.

NOTE: Heel flap is worked in rows on 32 stitches.

 

Heel Pattern:

Row 1 *Slip 1, k1 repeat across from *

Row 2 Slip 1, purl across

 

Knit in heel pattern until you have 32 heel flap rows. Heel flap shape should be close to square (See Tips). End with a purl row.

 

 

Turn Heel as follows:

 

Row 1: Sl 1, K18 sts, K2 tog, K1 turn

Row 2: Sl 1, P5 sts, P2 tog, P1, turn

Row 3: Sl 1, K6, K2 tog, K1, turn

Row 4: Sl 1, P7, P2 tog, P1, turn

 

Continue in this manner until all side stitches are consumed. End with a purl row.

 

 

Gusset:

 

Beginning with needle 1, knit across heel flap. Pick up and knit 16 heel flap stitches and one stitch in the gusset corner. Knit in pattern across needle 2 Pick up and knit one stitch in the gusset corner and 16 heel flap stitches.

 

Stitch count is (52, 32) respectively.

 

 

Gusset Decrease and Sock Foot:

 

Row 1:

Needle 1: K1, SSK, knit until the last 3 stitches k2 tog, k1.

Row 2: Work in pattern around.

 

Repeat these 2 rounds until total stitches equal 64. Transfer stitches as necessary so that you have returned to your original stitch placement. (32, 32)

 

Sock Foot:

 

Continue knitting in stockinette on needle 1 and in pattern on needle 2 (if desired) until you are approximately 1 1/2 to 2 inches from the top of your longest toe.

 

Shape Toe:

 

Row 1:

Needle 1: K1, SSK, knit until the last 3 sts, K2 tog, K1

Needle 2: K1, SSK, knit until the last 3 stitches, k2 tog, k1.
