A Sideways Knitted Sock for the Music Enthusiast

Finished size:
About 14” long from toe to calf

Materials:
! US #1/#2.25mm needles and dpns (or size according to your gauge swatch)
! 520 yards fingering weight yarn (Black)
! 320 yards fingering weight yarn (Ecru or White)
! Waste yarn for provisional cast on (preferably slick or cotton)
! Crochet hook for provisional cast on
! Stitch markers if desired

Gauge:
7 sts = 1” in stockinette stitch using US #1/2.25mm needle.

Technical Notes:
These socks are knitted flat with either stranded or intarsia knitting for the keyboard, kitchener stitched into a tube. The toe, cuff and afterthought heel added last. Knitting is started on the black key side of the keyboard with 8sts of white for each key x 10 white keys. Both socks can be made identically, then one of them reversed so that the keyboards are mirror images of each other.
