Triangle Sock

Pin It

This sock has the largest amount of stitches I have worked on, 80 stitches. I still have to complete the second sock . I just finished the ribbing and about to start the pattern. I bought the sock yarn at a local department store in Germany...Globus. Globus has a small selection of yarn, but it is almost like a Walmart where is has just about everything you need.
So the needle size is 2mm and the sock yarn is really fine, I want to fingering weight.
So here is the rest of the pattern:
Cast on 80 stitches: 40 on needle one, 20 on needle 2 and 3:


Pattern Stitch :

Row 1&2: P,K4,P4,K
Row 3&4: P2,K3,P3,K2
Row 5&6: P3,K2,P2,K3
Row 7&8: P4,K,P,K4
Row 9&10: K4,P,K,P4
Row 11&12: K3,P2,K2,P3
Row 13&14: K2,P3,K3,P2
Row 15&16: K,P4,K4,P

Leg/ cuff:
Do a K2,P2 rib for about 2 inches, then do pattern stitch desired leg length
When you are ready to work the heel, turn after finishing on needle 3:

Heal Flap (on needles 2 and 3):
Row 1: Slip 1, Purl, turn
Row 2: *Slip 1, Knit* Repeat, turn
Repeat these two rows until you have 38 rows completed
Heal Turn:
S1,P19,P2tog,P1, turn
S1,K2,SSK,K1,turn
S1,P3,P2Tog,P1, turn
S1,K4,SSK,K1,turn Continue in this manner until all the stitches are worked.
Note: the last two times you will not be able to P1/K1 after the decrease.
You should have 20 stitches on the needle

With an empty needle, pick up 10 stitches along heel flap (now needle 3) , continue pattern stitch along needle 1, pick up 10 stitches along other side of heal flap and knit the next 5 stitches (now needle 2), move remaining 5 stitches are on needle 3, 15 stitches on needles 2 and 3, 10 stitches in needle 1.

Start the decrease:
Row 1: With needle 3, knit to last three stitches, K2Tog, K1. With needle 1, continue pattern stitch. With needle 2, K1, slip the next stitch, K, and pass the slipped stitch over the K1 stitch and K until end

Row 2: Knit on needle 3, continue pattern on needle 1, Knit on needle 2

Repeat these two rows until you have 20 stitches on needles 2 and 3 (40 Total)

Continue row 2 until you have desired foot length, ending on needle 2

To make the toe: first row: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, slip the next stitch, K, and pass the slipped stitch over the K stitch. K until the last three stitches, then K2tog, K. On need two K first stitch, slip the next stitch, K, and pass the slipped stitch over the K stitch and K until end

  2. Lovely socks!

    Rows 1 & 2 reads: P,K4,P4,K. Does this mean: P1, K4, P4, K1?

    Thanks.
