Ribbed 4 his Pleasure

Since my Bday is Monday I thought i would give you guys a little gift from me to you! A FREE sock pattern!

So I thought you guys might like the pattern for these great socks! They are pretty easy and yet SO comfy!


Cast on 60

Arrange around 3 dpns

Cuff: K2 P2 ribbing. Cont for 3 inches

Now this is just what I did but after I was done with the ribbing I would arrange my stitches so that I have 16,16,28

Leg: Begin K3,P1 ribbing for 9 inches or till its the length you are happy with

Heel: Now for the fun part! You get to turn the heel dances around naked

This is a Short Row Heel, now if you have never done these dont worry they are REALLY easy and I prefer them to heel flaps since there is no flap WONT have to decrease in the gusset or pick up stitches...which i LOVE

Knit till you get to your needle with 28 stitches.

Knit till you have two stitches left on the needle. With working yarn in FRONT slip the next stitch, move the yarn to the back and pass the stitch back onto the left needle and turn work.

Purl till you get to the last 2 stitches and with the working yarn in BACK slip the next stitch, move the yarn to the front and slip the stitch back to the right needle, turn work.

Knit till you get to on stitch before your wrapped stitch, and repeat the wrapping process.

Do this until you have 8 wrapped stitches on each side

Hang with me we are almost there!

Its time to pick up the stitches we just wrapped so knit back to your last wrapped stitch and slip your needle thru both the stitch AND the wrap knit them together slip and wrap the next stitch so that there are 2 wraps turn your work and purl to the next wrapped stitch. Slip both the stitch and the wrap onto the needle and purl them together. Wrap the next stitch and turn work.

Knit back to the next stitch and slip needle thru BOTH wraps and knit 3 together, wrap the next stitch and turn work. Purl back to the next stitch, slip needle thru s stitch and the 2 wraps purl 3 together, wrap the next stitch and turn work.

Now you will continue doing this till you get to the last stitch and which point you will just knit it and start on foot.

Now go eat a WHOLE bar of chocolate

Foot: you will continue the k3xp1 ribbing till you get 3 inches from the end of the sock so if your sock finished sock needs to be 10 inches long you will knit 7 inches then start the toe.

YAY are you excited we are almost done with this damn sock!

Toe: Knit one round even.

I start decreasing my toes on the needle with 28 stitches and im going to refer to this as needle 1 for the last bit.

*Needle 1: K1 ssk knit to the last three stitches k2gther k1
Needle 2: K1 ssk knit till end of needle
Needle 3: Knit till there are 3 stitches left K2gther k1

Knit the next round even*

Continue this till there are ten stitches left

All you have to do is graft the toes closed and you are set!

Now here comes the hard part about socks...I know you are VERY proud of that sock you are holdingin your hand right now...but alas you have to put it aside and start its twin....

hands you more chocolate and a glass of wine
