Knitted top down in a pretty twist pattern, the Sherbet Lemon Sock has a square/Dutch heel and a circular toe perfect for those who don’t like Kitchener stitch.

The Sherbet lemon Sock is designed in three sizes - to fit foot/leg circumference approx 6.25”/16.25cm, 8”/20cm and 10”/25.5cm - because of the stitch requirements for blending the toe decreases into the pattern. However, if your foot/leg circumference falls exactly between sizes, or just below this midpoint, knitting the smaller size on bigger needles should enable you to create a good fit. If your foot/leg circumference falls just above the midpoint of two sizes try knitting the bigger size on smaller needles.

For example:
If you’re knitting to gauge and your foot/leg circumference measures between 8.55”/21.4cm and 9”/22.5cm try using 2/2.75mm needles and the 8”/20cm instructions.
.
If you’re knitting to gauge and your foot/leg circumference measures between 9.1”/22.75 and 9.5”/23.75cm try using 1/2.25mm needles and the 10”/25.5cm instructions.

The sock is shown in size 8”/20cm size, used almost exactly half a skein of Woo Sheeps Dick, but a suitable amount of any 4ply/sock weight yarn can be used.
