I know I said that would post my sock pattern here and I am finally doing it…step-by-step style.
For this basic sock I am using Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima in Pansy. This yarn is 100% Pima Cotton. I totally dig it when my knits are swanky. I am also knitting these socks with a set of four size 4 double-pointed needles as I have found 24 – 25 stitches makes 4″ for me using this yarn and needle size. By the way, this sock pattern fits an average sized female foot – including US sizes 7, 7.5, and 8.
Step One – Cast On, Join, and Knit (I am aware that this seems like three steps…I’m counting them as one)
I like the long tail cast on here. It is simple and forgiving for a cuff.
- Cast on 60 stitches onto 3 DPNs so that 30 stitches are on needle 1 and 15 stitches each are on needles 2 and 3.
- Join. Be careful to not twist the stitches or you’ll have to start over from the beginning.
- Round 1 – K2, P2 rib.
- Continue K2, P2 rib until knitted piece measures .75 inches from the cast on edge.
