Repeat Rounds 1-32 for pattern.

Continue knitting the foot until your work measures 2.5 inches less than the entire length of your foot.

TOE:

Using a toe up cast on of your choice (I prefer Judy’s Magic Cast-On), CO a total of 32 (36) sts. Divide sts evenly on the needles. If using DPNs, you may need to move sts from needle to needle from time to time to accommodate the Stitch Pattern. Place a stitch marker to note the beginning of the round.

Note: Needles 1 and 2 are the top of the toe sts. Needles 3 and 4 are the bottom of the toe sts.

Set-up Rnd: Knit all sts on each needle.

Rnd 1: Needle 1: Kfb, k to end of needle.

Needle 2: k to 2 sts before end of needle, kfb, k1.
Needle 3: kfb, k to end of needle.
Needle 4: k to 2 sts before end of needle, kfb, k1 – 4 total sts inc’d this rnd.

Rnd 2: Knit all sts on each needle.

Rep Rnds 1-2, 7(8) more times – 64 (72) sts.

If you prefer a more pointed toe, CO fewer sts, work more rnds until you have increased to 64 (72) sts.

If you prefer a different toe, work your toe of preference until you have the desired amount of sts.

FOOT

Once you have reached 64 (72) sts, begin working the foot.

Needles 1 and 2 will be the top of the foot (working the Stitch Pattern) and Needles 3 and 4 will become the sole sts (working in St st).

Begin working the Stitch Pattern from the charts or written instructions.

Repeat Rnds 1-32 for the rem of the sock.

Cont working the foot as est until the piece measures 2.5” shorter (LESS) than the desired finished foot length.

Gussett

In this section, Needles 1 and 2 will cont the sock in the Stitch Pattern up the foot and towards the front of the leg. Needles 3 and 4 will be increasing and forming the gusset on the sole of the foot working towards the heel of the sock.

Rnd 1:

Needles 1 and 2: Cont working next rnd in Stitch Pattern as est.
Needle 3: kfb, k to end of needle.
Needle 4: k to 2 sts before end of needle, kfb, k1.

Rnd 2:

Needles 1 and 2: Cont working in Stitch Pattern as est.
Needles 3 and 4: k all sts.

Rep these 2 rnds until there are 56 (64) total sts on Needles 3 and 4.

Turning the Heel

Once you have reached 56 (64) sts, begin turning the heel.

Work over Needles 1 and 2 once (top sts). Cont working back and forth over Needles 3 and 4 turning the heel.

Note: Make special of note the last Rnd worked in Stitch Pattern, as you will cont working that same rnd once the heel has been turned.

Row 1: (RS) k31 (35), ssk, k1, turn.
Row 2: (WS) Sl1, p7, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 3: Sl1, k to 1 st before the gap, ssk, k1, turn.
Row 4: Sl1, p to 1 st before the gap, p2tog, p1, turn.

Rep Rows 3-4 until there are 32 (36) total sts rem on Needles 3 and 4.

Leg

Resume working on all 4 needles, paying careful attention as to working the rest of the same row in pattern where you left off to turn the heel.

The sample is shown with the pattern on both the front and the back of the sock. You can make this sock as simple or as detailed as you would like.

If you wish to keep the back of the leg in St st, keep working the pattern as you were.

If you wish to have the Stitch Pattern on the back and front of the sock, start working the back of the sock, repeating the same rnd that you knit over Needles 1 and 2 before working the gusset and then after that working the Stitch Pattern twice.

Either way you choose to do the leg, you may need to pick up a stitch on either side to close up any holes there may be, remembering to k2tog or ssk with an end st to maintain the correct st count.

Work leg until measures 1.5-2” less than the entire desired length of the sock.

Knit 1 rnd.

Cuff and Ribbing

Medium: (Ktbl, p1) 32 times.

Large: (Ktbl, p1) 36 times.

Rep Cuff pattern for 1.5-2”.

Finishing

Bind off all stitches in pattern using a stretchy bind-off.
