Edit July 2, 2011: I am doing this sock again and checked up on any errors that I had made when I first published this pattern. I wished I had looked at this pattern sooner, I found a HUGE error. I got the SSK's and K2Tog's in the wrong place. So after today I will have it fixed. I hope this did not inconvenience anyone. I also edited the also. I haven't got to the heel yet in my current sock, so I might make more changes.
This Sock was made using Regina cotton sock yarn. I used 72 stitches size 0 (2mm) double-pointed needles. The gauge was 9 stitches per inch
I put half of the stitches on the first needle (36) and 18 stitches on needles two and three.
I only used two rows of k1,p1 rib, however you can used a longer rib or none at all. After the desired rib length follow the 20 row pattern for desired leg length:
Row 1: YO, K4, K2Tog
Row 2 and all even rows, K
Row 3: K1,YO,K3, K2Tog
Row 5: K2, YO,K2, K2Tog
Row 7: K3, YO, K1, K2Tog
Row 9: K4, YO, K2Tog
Row 11: SSK,K4, YO
Row 13: SSK, K3, YO, K1
Row 15: SSK, K2, YO, K2
Row 17: SSK, K1, YO, K3
Row 19: SSK, YO, K4
To form the short row heel:
Turn and working on needles two and three
slip 1, P34, turn
slip 1, K33, turn
slip 1, P32, turn
Continue in this manner until you reach slip 1, k17, turn
slip 1, P to stitch before a gap, P2tog,pick up a stitch before the next stitch (this stitch is on the right needle), turn
slip 1, K to stitch before a gap, K2tog,pick up a stitch before the next stitch (this stitch is on the right needle), turn
Continue in this manner until all the stitches are work. Don't turn when you are ready to continue on with the foot.
To continue with the foot, work the pattern stitch on needle one and knit on needles two and three. Work until about 1 1/2 inches before desired foot length
To make the toe:
starting with needle 3, k until you get to the last three stitches, k2tog and k the last stitch.
On needle one k first stitch, SSK, k until the last three stitches, then k2tog, k.
On need two k first stitch, SSK, k until end
Knit on all three needles
repeat row one and two until half (36) stiches remain.
Close with Kitchener stitch.
