Notes

Knitting would have gone a lot faster if I didn’t have to rip out the first sole twice to get the right length and redo the first cuff. Started 11/5 and finished knitting 11/8.

Gauge: 4.25 sts/inch

Sole
Cast on 62 sts (31 each side) using Judy’s Magic Cast On for a US size 8. Purled 1 round and then began knitting back and forth.

Instep
Joined to knit in the round. Used 12 sts instead of 9 for the top of the foot.

Cuff
Also worked in the round as follows:
Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: k2tog, knit until 2 sts remain, k2tog
Row 4: purl
Row 5: k2tog, knit until 2 sts remain, k2tog
Row 6: purl
Row 7: k2tog, knit until 2 sts remain, k2tog
Row 8: purl
Bind off using p2tog decrease bind off.
