I made several of those for my mum and she really likes to wear them - see here »

The pattern is from this book: Socken Stricken by Heidi Grund-Thorpe  »

This time, I will try to make more extended notes so I remember what exactly I did:

Casted on 48 stitches.
Plan to knit in garter stitch for 12 cm
Will join for the toe then and start the toe at 17-18 cm.

Casted these on so that I have something to knit on during my train trip to Paris and back.

Done - but they might be a little on the big side.
Did 12.5 cm for the garter part and 11 additional centimeters for the knit in the round. Should have only done 10 cm, so I shortened the toe and did decreases in every row.

Next time, 11 cm for the garter and 9 cm for the round will be better, I think…

February 3, 2019

Made a second pair way shorter - only about 10.5 cm garter and app. 8 cm in the round before starting my normal toe: Decreasing every other row until you only have half the stitches on each needle, then decrease every row.

All the photos “in wear” are taken with the smaller pair, so the garter part has enough stretch.
