Bakerloo (a sideways sock)
NOW AVAILABLE AS RAVELRY DOWNLOAD
A sideways knit sock. Kitchener and provisional cast on meet to make a seamless tube, with “afterthought” short row heels and toes to finish.
I’m not advocating an all out move to sideways construction, but it does allow for different design possibilities. It also might help if you’re finding variegated yarn is pooling on the horizontal rounds of a standard sock pattern.
This is more of a tutorial than a pattern; adaptable for yarn, size of foot and design pattern. I’ve also provided instructions for toes and heels without short rows because not everyone loves them as much as me.
