This is my first design! I was so fortunate that KnitPicks published these socks back in 2005, a short 6 months after I’d begun knitting! They are now located on my design site. They were formerly available on the Knitpicks site but have been removed since the yarn I used is now discontinued.
Additional pattern notes from Rebecca:
: When I wrote this pattern I had been knitting for less than 6 months, knitting socks for approximately 2 months therefore I would like to add a helpful tip or 2 to the pattern:
1st of all, this change is taking place on the last “knit” round prior to turning sock inside out. The pattern reads in this place, “Knit 1 rnd.” Then the instructions for turning sock inside out. Okay, the change is as follows: do not knit this round,PURL* it. This will make a smoother fold. Purl to the last stitch,W&T* (bring working yarn to front, slip the last st to the right needle without working it, bring yarn to the back and slip the stitch back to the left needle). The W&T will correct the orientation of the stitching. On the next round when you get to the wrapped stitch you are to purl the wrap and stitch together to prevent a hole. Simply slip your needle under the wrap, slip the wrap up & onto the left needle & purl it together with the purl st. as if you are doing a p2tog. Continue pattern as written.
