Stirrup Socks

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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


K1, p1 Rib (over even number of sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end.
Rep Row 1 for K1, p1 Rib.

Cast on 38 (40, 44, 46) sts.
Rows 1–6: Work in k1, p1 Rib.
Next Rows: Work even in St st (k on RS, p on WS) for 2 in. (5 cm).
Shape Heel Slit
Row 1:
Bind off 19 (20, 22, 23) sts, knit to end – 19 (20, 22, 23) sts at end of row.
Row 2: Purl to end then cast on 19 (20, 22, 23) sts – 38 (40, 44, 46) sts at end of row.
Work even in St st (k on RS, p on WS) for 3-1/2 in. (9 cm) then work in k1, p1 Rib for 5 rows. Bind off.

Sew seam. With crochet hook and WS facing, join yarn with sl st at heel slit. Work single crochet evenly spaced around heel slit. Weave in ends.

I am slightly glad they are too big. I wear size 7 1/2 so they will fit over my regular socks
