Diamondback Rattlesnake Cast Sock

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

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.

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.

If you don't feel up to adding the elastic, you can use a rubber band or a band of ╝ inch elastic over the top of the sock to hold it on. However, finishing with the elastic in the cuff is a little nicer looking! 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.

Embroider eyes and any other features that you may desire on the face. Cut a forked tongue of felt and sew into place with the sewing needle and thread.
