Knitted 'Berry Patch' Socks

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Sportweight

GAUGE:

24 sts = 4".

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Stitch abbreviations:
SKP: Slip 1 stitch, knit 1 stitch, pass the slip stitch over the knit stitch. M1 (make 1): An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the lefthand needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop. Berry Patch Pattern: Rnd 1: K around.
Rnds 2 & 3: *K 4, p 4; rep from * around.
Rnd 4: P around
Rnds 5 & 6: *K 4, p 4; rep from * around.
Rnd 7: K around.
Rnds 8 & 9: *P 4, k 4; rep from * around.
Rnd 10: P around.
Rnds 11 & 12: *P 4, k 4; rep from * around. Rep Rows 1-12 for Berry Patch Pat.

NOTES:

This information may be helpful for knitters who have not worked socks on four needles.

In this method the first and last needle in each round hold stitches for the heel and

the bottom of the sock foot, while needles 2 and 3 hold stitches for the top or instep of the sock. This method is much simpler than moving stitches around from needle to needle to create your heel flap or your toe.


SOCK


Cast on 48 sts (12 sts on each of 4 dpns). Join and work around in k 1, p 1 ribbing for 1 1/2". Work in Berry Patch Pat until sock top is approx 6" long or desired length, ending with Rnd 1 or Rnd 7.
Next row: K across needle #1 and turn work for heel flap.
Heel flap: Row 1: Sl 1, then p sts across needles #1 and #4. Place these 24 sts on one needle for heel flap.
Row 2: (Sl 1, k 1) across these 24 sts. Rep last 2 rows until 25 rows have been completed, ending with a p row and RS facing you.

Turn heel
Row 1: Sl 1, k 13, skp, k 1, turn.
Row 2: Sl 1, p 5, p2tog, p 1, turn.
Row 4: Sl 1, p 7, p2tog, p 1, turn.
Row 5: Sl 1, k 8, skp, k 1, turn.
Row 6: Sl 1, p 9, p2tog, p 1, turn.
Row 7: Sl 1, k 10, skp, k 1, turn.
Row 8: Sl 1, p 11, p2tog, p 1, turn. When 14 sts rem, k across and beg gussets.


Gussets

With RS facing, pick up 12 sts along side of heel flap, M1 in loop between heel flap and instep needle, work Berry Patch Pat across two instep needles, M1 in loop between instep needle and heel flap, pick up 12 sts along other side of heel flap. Divide heel sts between needles #1 and #4. Work 1 rnd, knitting the M1 st with last st on each side of gusset and maintaining pat on instep needles.
Dec rnd: K to 3 sts from end of needle #1, skp, k 1; work pat on instep sts; k 1, k2tog, k rem sts on needle #4. Work 1 rnd even, with no decs, always maintaining pat on instep. Rep these 2 rnds until heel needles #1 and #4 have 12 sts on each needle.

Foot: Work around as est until foot length is 1 1/2" less than desired length from back of heel. Toe: Dec rnd: Work until 3 sts rem on needle #1, skp, k 1; k 1, k2tog, k rem sts on needle #2; k sts on needle #3 until 3 sts rem, skp, k 1; k 1, k2tog, k rem sts on needle #4. Knit 1 rnd. Rep these 2 rnds three more times, then rep dec rnd only until 4 sts rem on each needle. Combine sts on needles #1 and #4 on one needle and sts from needles #2 and #3 on another needle.

Graft toe


Thread yarn needle.
1. With knitting needles side-by-side, right sides up, and slipping stitches off as you work, insert yarn needle as if to purl into the first stitch on the front piece, then as if to knit into the first stitch on the back piece. Draw the yarn through.
2. Insert the yarn needle as if to knit into the first stitch on the front piece again, drawing yarn through.
3. Insert the yarn needle as if to purl into the next stitch on the front piece. Draw the yarn through.
4. Insert the yarn needle as if to purl into the next stitch on the front piece, drawing yarn through.
5. Insert the yarn needle as if to knit into the next stitch on the back piece. Draw yarn through. Repeat steps 2-5 until all stitches have been grafted.

Correction: In graft instructions eliminate either #3 OR #4. The instruction is a repeat.
Lion Brand can delete this if they think I'm wrong or if they print the correction themselves.
