How I Make My Socks by Susan B. Anderson
me :)
Needle and yarn
US 1 - 2.25 mm
Zitron Trekking XXL
1 skein = 459.0 yards (419.7 meters), 100 grams

Cast on 62
k2 p2 rib for 15 rounds
then knit 50 rounds (could have done more)
Heel flap (rs is a1,k1; ws is s1, purl… repeat 16 times total and then do rs row one more time)
Turn heel (s1, p17, p2tog, p1
s1, k5, k2tog, k1… until 18 stitches remain)
PU and knit 16 on both sides of heel flap.
On gusset decreases, did opposite decreases (when ssk called for, did k2tog and when k2tog called, did ssk)
Foot 55 rounds (could have done fewer as socks are a tad long)
toe decreases (opposite decreases again) until 24 stitches remain (12 on each needle)
graft with Kitchner stitch.

Good fitting socks. Must have been too relaxed when I did the first sock (a tad loose). Must have been stressed out when I did second sock (snugger fit like I like). Maybe they’ll be snugger after washing (I hope).
