Striped Ribbed Socks

Lion Brand® Sock-EaseTM

GAUGE:

34 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (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:

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 tog - 1 st decreased.

K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (multiple of 2 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.  Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

K3, p1 Rib worked in rnds (multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K3, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K3, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

NOTES:

1. Socks are worked from top down to toe.
2. When you see 'as established' in the instructions, this means to continue in the current pattern st. For example, to continue in a K3, p1 Rib, work the next rnd of the pattern to maintain the Rib pattern.

SOCK (make 2)
Leg

With A, loosely cast on 72 sts. Divide sts evenly onto 4 double pointed needles (18 sts per needle). Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Work in K1, p1 Rib until piece measures about 1 in. (2.5 cm) from beg.
Following the stripe sequence below, work in K3, p1 Rib until piece measures 8 in. (20.5 cm) from beg.

Stripe Sequence
A for 3 in. (until piece measures about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from beg).
B for 1 in. (2.5 cm)
A for 1/2 in. (1.5 cm)
B for 1 in. (2.5 cm)
A for 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm) or until piece measures 8 in (20.5 cm) from beg.

Heel Flap
Note:
Heel is worked back and forth in rows over 36 sts, on 2 needles only. The rem 36 sts, on the other 2 needles, are for the instep (top of foot), and will be worked again after the heel is complete. Remove beg of rnd marker.
Change to B.
Row 1 (RS): (Sl 1 as if to purl, k1) 18 times, turn.
Row 2: Sl 1 as if to purl, p35, turn.
Rep last 2 rows until heel flap measures 2 1/4 in. (5.5 cm), end with a Row 2. Note: End with a Row 2 means that the last row you work should be a Row 2.

Turn Heel
Note:
To turn (shape) the heel, short rows are worked over the 36 heel flap sts. Short rows are rows that are worked over a portion of the sts in a row. To work short rows, the instructions will tell you to 'turn' before you reach the end of the row, when you turn, you will leave the remaining sts unworked.
Row 1 (RS): K22, ssk, k1, turn.
Row 2: Sl 1 as if to purl, p9, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 3: Sl 1 as if to purl, k10, ssk, k1, turn.
Row 4: Sl 1 as if to purl, p11, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 5: Sl 1 as if to purl, k12, ssk, k1, turn.
Row 6: Sl 1 as if to purl, p13, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 7: Sl 1 as if to purl, k14, ssk, k1, turn.
Row 8: Sl 1 as if to purl, p15, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 9: Sl 1 as if to purl, k16, ssk, k1, turn.
Row 10: Sl 1 as if to purl, p17, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 11: Sl 1 as if to purl, k18, ssk, k1, turn.
Row 12: Sl 1 as if to purl, p19, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 13: Sl 1 as if to purl, k20, ssk, turn.
Row 14: Sl 1 as if to purl, p20, p2tog, turn.
There are now 22 sts for the heel.

Place marker, this is the new beg of rnd.

Insert needle as if to purl into first stitch on front needle. Insert needle as if to knit into first stitch on back needle. Then follow steps 1-4 as outlined below.
