All Mine to Give

A repeat of part of the last installment: Continue knitting in even rounds (no increase or decrease) until sock is nearly as long as you want it. (In my case, I continued until the length from the back of the heel to my needle was 9". The toe decreases will add a scant inch to the length, so don't scrimp!)

If you are careful, you can try the sock on at this point. Note: The length that it is on my personal foot is too short! It shouud hit the "knuckle " of your big toe without stretching.

Decrease for the toe: Decrease for toe: K across needle 1 to 3 stitches from the end, skp, k 1. K 1, k2 together, K across needle 2 to 3 stitches from the end, skp, k 1. K 1, k2 together,K across needle 3 to the end.

Repeat this round until 8 stitches remain. Cut yarn about 6" long. Thread yarn needle and draw through the remaining 8 stitches. Repeat; fasten off.

(If you are feeling ambitious, you can graft the toe instead.)

Make another.

Note: Do not fall victim to dreaded SSS (Second Sock Syndrome, a varient of SMS --Second Mitten Syndrome)!

There was not a lot of yarn left from my 50g ball (110 yards) of Cervinia Sorrento.



So am I getting this right?
No plain knit row between toe decrease rows - just a few rows of rapid decreasing?
Mine are bright red!
you have cute little 'tootsies'! Why don't you just start a new 'fashion trend' and go 'toeless'??? You could paint the nails for Halloween, and call 'em 'ScareToes'!
No plain row, just a rapid decrease!

And leave my tootsies alone, wayne. Scare toes indeed!
Hi Ann!
I missed doing the tutorial with you and am now going back and finding all of the posts.
I found six. Is that right?
