Miniature Sock Pattern

Here is miniature sock I plan to use on my Christmas presents instead of bows.  Because this is meant as decoration, yarn and needle size don't really matter.

Here is the pattern I used to make the sock.

Miniature 24 Stitch sock


Cast on 24 stitches: 12 on needle one, 6 on needle 2 and 3:


Leg/ cuff:
Do desired rounds of K1,P1 rib (about 4-5)
Knit remaining rounds for 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, turn

Repeat these two rows until you have 10 rows completed

Heal Turn:
S1,P9,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 6 stitches on the needle

With an empty needle, pick up 6 stitches along heel flap (now needle 3) , knit along needle 1, pick up 6 stitches along other side of heal flap and knit the next 3 stitches (now needle 2), move remaining 3 stitches are on needle 3, 9 stitches on needles 2 and 3, 12 stitches in needle 1.

Start the decrease:
Row 1: With needle 3, knit to last three stitches, K2Tog, K1. With needle 1, knit. 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 around

Repeat these two rows until you have 6 stitches on needles 2 and 3 (24 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

Second row:
Knit on all three needles

repeat row one and two until half (12) stitches remain.

Close with
kitcheners stitch.
