Warm Feet

The recipe

I wear size 6 (US)/38-39 (EUR):

  • 1 Skein Malabrigo Sock (100% Merino),  shade 803 “Ochre”
  • set of US 1/2.25mm double pointed needles (I’ve tried magic loop, but I still prefer my dpns!)

I cast on 64sts and worked in *k2, p2* ribbing for 7.5″/19cm. My favourite heel is the so-called jojo-heel (a double stitch short row heel; find a tutorial here), worked in plain stockinette stitch over half of the stitches (10-12-10 in this case). After finishing the heel, I continued working in stockinette stitch for another 5″/12.5cm. For the toes, I worked the decrease round once, then worked 4 rounds even, the decrease round once, 3 rounds even, the decrease round once, again 3 rounds even, decrease round, 2 rounds even, decrease round, 2 rounds even, decrease round, 2 rounds even. After that I repeated the decrease round until there were only 8sts left, cut the yarn and pulled it through the remaining stitches. Done!
