Notes

16.06.2017

  • I had 35 x 4 stitches when I divided sock to the foot and leg.
  • For foot I decreased stitches (like told in English pattern) to the 62 stitches.

17.06.2017

  • When the bottom of the foot was 4 cm less than desired length I started to made some short rows. I always turned 3 stitches before than in the previous row. At the instep I continued similar decreases like before. I continued like that until I didn’t have any stitches left.
  • After that I started toe with contrast color at the middle of the sole. At the first row I knitted 3 * increased 1 stitch, knitted 6, repeated from * until 3 stitches left, increased 1, knitted 3 = 56 stitches.
  • I made regular toe.

18.06.2017

  • For the leg I decreased stitches to the 64 stitches.
  • I made similar short rows to the leg before ribbing as in the foot.
  • I made ribbing with the contrasting color
