Directions...don't ask me how to short row, because I would have to
look it up too, at this point in time :-)
at toe...figure eight cast on or double knit. Or do a little square
and pick up stitches all around.
Put on four
needles. Increase on sides until desired size for your foot.
Work even to
desired foot length, testing length by pulling it onto your foot.
front and heel. I put maybe 4-6 extra on heel so it is deep enough.
Leave front stitches alone for now.
Work back and
forth on heel stitches, short rowing at ends of knitted rows until
you have only a couple of stitches left.
Work back down
the triangle, picking up one stitch at the end of each row until
you have as many stitches as you started with...this makes a heel
like a commercial sock with an angled ridge. Fudge the little area
where it looks like there will be a hole.
in rounds again. You are on the cuff.
Work to desired
length or until you run out of yarn :-)
Bind off LOOSELY.
I do the sewn bind-off from EZ...cut your thread LONG (four times
the diameter???), thread onto a yarn needle and...
1. Purl through two stitches to the left and leave them on the needle.
2. Knit through
the first stitch and drop it off the needle.
all the stitches are off the needle...work LOOSELY!.
I usually take
the first stitch and move it to the position at the end of the last
needle rather than drop it in step two so it will get both passes...
