Knitting the toe Round 1 (decrease round): *K1, ssk, ( 18: 20), k2tog, k1, pm; repeat from * once more. 40 ( 44: 48) sts. Round 2: Knit. Cont as set, decreasing one st after and one st before each marker. For example, on the next dec row you will work: [K1, ssk, k14 ( 16: 18), k2tog, k1, slm] twice, to decrease 4 sts across the round. Repeat these two rounds three more times. 28 ( 32: 36) stitches remaining. Now work the decrease round on every round 3 ( 4: 5) times. 16 stitches rem. Place front and back toe stitches on two parallel needles and graft them together using the Kitchener stitch tutorial on the following page.
MAKE HEEL See pictures below. 1 Firstly go back to your
placement and examine the stitches – each knit stitch is easily recognised by its tell-tale ‘V’ shape. 2 Using a double-pointed needle, carefully pick up the right leg of each stitch along the round just under the contrasting yarn row. 3 Turn the sock around and repeat step across the other side of the contrasting yarn row, again picking up each right leg of each stitch just below the contrasting yarn. 4 Using a tapestry needle carefully unpick each stitch of the waste yarn pulling it out, until you are left with live stitches on two parallel needles and a gaping hole in between. 5 Redistribute these stitches over four needles, 11 ( 12: 13) sts on each needle. Join yarn at the right side of the heel. Round 1: *Pick up and knit one st into the gap before needle 1, knit across needle 1 sts, knit across needle 2 sts, pick up and knit one st into the gap after needle 2; repeat from *across needles 3 and 4. 12 ( 13: 14) sts on each needle. Knit 2 ( 3: 4) rounds.
