This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Pattern finally fixed! If you downloaded before 5/14/2011 at 3:38 please delete and redownload to get a version with heel turning instructions.

YOU MUST USE ADOBE TO DOWNLOAD THIS PATTERN. If you use a different PDF reader all you will get is pictures and no text. I don’t know why this happens.

Someone just pointed out to me that the toe decreasing instructions are very vague if you are not familiar with sock decreasing. Here is what you should do:

Where it says to work a decrease round it means you start a standard toe decrease. To do this you would separate the stitches so you have 32 and 32 on your needles and make sure they are placed across your foot however you want the toe to line up.

For the decrease round, knit from your starting point (it may have changed once you lined up the toes) until you are within 3 sts of one of your edges, then depending on which edge you come to first you would K2tog, K1 or K1, SSK. Then do this for the other three edges and remember which side you started on because you will always start on that side for the rest of the decreases.
