Mystery Sock - Clue 1
Click on the chart and instructions for a large, readable version.
Size: Small – Medium: The pattern is nice and stretchy, so a medium foot should be fine. If you’re not certain, go up a needle size. Graph for the large size is at the end of the pattern.
Style: Cuff to toe
Gauge: 7.50 sts over stockinette
Needles: size 2.50mm (size 1.5); 2 circulars, or whatever you’re comfortable with. I used a size 0 because I have a slender leg and foot and I knit very loosely.
Yarn: 350-400 yds of sock weight yarn
Pattern repeat: 30 stitches
Cast on 60 stitches loosely. Divide your sts up as follows: 30 on needle one, and 30 on needle two.
Ribbing: Work ribbing pattern on each needle. Repeat ribbing for as long as you wish, ending with round 4. (I made 4 repeats of the ribbing.)
There is a special stitch, the cluster stitch, in the ribbing and in the sock pattern. Here's how you make it:
On the left hand needle, slip the 3rd stitch from the point over the previous 2 stitches. Then k1, yo, k1: 3 stitches made.
The chart is accurate. I know that it looks odd with that first st a knit and then a purl instead of k2, but it's correct. It's part of a pattern. And yes, it's a cluster followed by p3. Just go with the flow.
How are you all doing? I just finished dyeing for today, and maybe I'll have time to knit with you.
