Striped Cast Sock

Lion Brand« Lion® Cashmere Blend

GAUGE:

26 stitches = 4 inches [10 cm] in pattern stitch. 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

SOCK

With A, cast on 54 stitches. Leave a 12-inch tail at the beginning. This is used to sew up the sock.

Rows 1 *K3, p3 rep from * to end of row
Rows 2-8 rep row 1
Row 9-18
Change to B, rep row 1
Rows 19-20 Change to A, rep row 1
Rows 21-24 Change to B, rep row 1
Rows 25-28 Change to A, rep row 1
Rows 29-30 Change to B, rep row 1
Rows 31-36 rep row 1
Row 37 ** k2tog, k1, p2tog, p1 rep from ** to end of row -- 36 sts
Row 38 rep row 37 -- 18 sts

Finishing
The toe area is finished with a 3-needle bind-off. If you don't want to try this, simply bind off the end and sew together.

3-needle bind-off:
Slip 9 stitches one needle, leaving 9 on the working needle. With right sides together, hold in one hand two needles with equal number of stitches on each:



With third needle, knit together one stitch from each needle:


*knit together one stitch from each needle, pass first stitch worked over second to bind off, repeat form * across to last stitch.

Cut working yarn and pull through last stitch to secure. Tie off. Turn the sock so the right sides are out.

Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with tail of yarn left at the beginning of the sock. Sew up the sides. If you did not do the three-needle bind-off, you will need to sew the toe as well.

Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with the black elastic thread. Turn the sock inside out. Starting at the top of the sock, tie off the end of the elastic thread and weave the elastic through the top part of the sock so that it is lying on the inside surface (pull it reasonably tight). Continue in a spiral until you have elastic through the entire top band of the sock. The cast is rough and the elastic surface that you are making ensures that the sock does not creep off. Tie off the elastic and turn the sock right-side out.

Striped Cast Sock Reviewed by Donna LaDuke on 2008-01-20 ****
This made a great gift for a friend who broke her leg. I had to change the last row of the pattern which said to repeat the previous row. In reality I needed to k 2 tog; p 2 tog & repeat to the end. I liked the way the pattern told me to bind off. It worked great. Thanks Lion Brand!
