Luscious Lounge Socks

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Cashmere - Sock-EaseTM

GAUGE:

20 sts + 29 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). 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:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them together.

NOTES:

Socks are worked with 1 strand each of A and B held tog throughout.

SOCK (make 2)
With 1 strand each of A and B held tog, cast on 40 sts. Divide sts evenly onto 3 needles and join, being careful not to twist. Place marker for beginning of rnd. Work in k1, p1 rib for 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm). Work in St st in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures 8 in. (20.5 cm) from beg.
Shape Heel Flap
K 20 sts, turn.
Work back and forth in rows on these 20 sts only for Heel Flap.
Row 1 (WS): Sl 1, p19.
Row 2: *Sl 1, k1; rep from * across.
Row 3: Sl 1, purl across.
Rep last 2 rows until a total of 21 rows have been worked, ending with a Row 3.
Short Row Shaping
Next Row (RS): Sl 1, k11, ssk, k1, turn.
Next Row: Sl 1, p5, p2tog, p1, turn.
Next Row: Sl 1, k6, ssk, k1, turn.

Next Rnd: Knit.
Rep last 2 rnds until 16 sts rem. Divide sts evenly onto 2 needles. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for grafting.
Grafting
Holding the 2 needles parallel with wrong sides of fabric together, thread a large-eyed blunt needle with one of the yarn ends and work as follows:
Insert needle as if to p into first stitch on front needle. Insert needle as if to k into first stitch on back needle. Then follow steps 1-4 as outlined below.
1) Insert needle as if to k through first st on front needle and let the st drop from needle.
2) Insert needle into 2nd st on front needle as if to p, and leave st on needle.
3) Insert needle into first st on back needle as if to p and let it drop from needle, then
4) Insert needle as if to k through 2nd st on back needle and pull the yarn through, leaving st on needle. Rep Steps 1-4 until all sts have been grafted. When finished grafting, adjust tension as necessary.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Luscious Lounge Socks Reviewed by Joanne Bland on 2011-03-05 *****
Love the wool for socks. Have knitted 4 or 5 pairs now and they have good lasting ability.
