This is the December 2008/January 2009 pattern for the Six Sox Knitalong Group. It is available in English and German.
Women’s Medium: to fit foot circumference: 8-9 inches / 20-22.5 cm
Leg circumference: approx. 8 inches / 20 cm, unstretched
- 100g fingering weight sock yarn in a solid or semi-solid color
- 1 set of 5 US #1/2.25 mm double-pointed needles, or
- 1 set of 5 US #2/2.75 mm double-pointed needles
- Tapestry needle
32 sts/44 rows = 4 inches / 10 cm in stockinette stitch or
28 sts/40 rows = 4 inches/ 10 cm in stockinette stitch, depending on yarn and needles chosen
Note: Some test knitters preferred 64 sts on US#1/2.25mm needles and others preferred 60 sts on US#2/2.75mm needles. Some worked the leg on US#2’s over 60 sts and the foot on US#1’s over 64 sts.
Swatch: Cast on 60 sts with your chosen needles. Knit 1 round. Work the 10 rounds of the smaller pattern chart twice around the sock. Try the sock on. If it’s too small, cast on 64 sts for the sock. If you used US#2/2.75mm needles and you think the lace looks sloppy, switch to smaller needles and cast on 64 sts.
