4 Accessories 2009 • INTERWEAVE KNITS • interweaveknits.com
strands
Many of us here
at Interweave are
hardcore knitters.
In fact, the Interweave “lineage” includes a number of knitters who, through the
pages of our magazines and books, have helped you learn good solid techniques,
improved your skills, and inspired you through their projects and the projects of
many talented designers. We knit in our heads as we read patterns, and we knit
with our hands, which add up to our staff projects that we share with you. And
we hear directly from you, our dear readers.
In fact, our customer service staff hears from you often with such questions
as, “I want to make the hat that I saw in such-and-such magazine (or book), but
I can’t find that issue.” Or “I can’t remember what issue the blue cabled scarf was
in. Can you help me?” So we decided to make it easy for you to find many of the
accessories all in one place. From the archives, we culled and collected projects
that are both our favorites and ones we think you’ll enjoy making.
Trough these pages, we hope you’ll find the perfect scarf, sock, hat or mitt.
Or, if a few years back, you weren’t quite ready to tackle making a sock but you
are now, you can get started with the guidance from expert Ann Budd. Or, you
want to try a new edging for a scarf you just finished: check out Finishing Details.
Need help reading a chart—find it on page 26. Oh, there’s plenty more.
What better time for this collection than during the season when you want to
knit something quickly as a gift or have a hat, scarf or mitts at-the-ready when
the snow flies.
Wishing you hours of happy clicking,

STRIPES
Stripes are an easy way to add multiple colors to your work. Tey
can be as narrow or as bold as you desire, and you can use many
stripes in one project. Several shades of one hue give a subtle,
almost dimensional effect, while contrasting colors make a work
vibrate. Stripes are a fun way to experiment with color effects
that can be further enhanced by stripe width and placement.
When you’re working stripes back and forth in rows, it is easier,
but not essential, to work in two-row increments so that all
stripes begin on a knit row; in this way the yarn will always be at
the edge where you need it. When you’re working narrow stripes
of just a few colors, it is not necessary to cut the yarn when you
change colors—the unused color can be carried loosely up the
side of your work for a few rows (Figure 1) or you can carry the
colors for more than two rows by twisting the colors every other
row (Figure 2). If you are working circularly, the yarn will always
be at the beginning of the round.
To change colors, simply begin a new row (or round) with your new
color. If the edge stitch seems too loose, you can tie the yarn end
temporarily (you will undo the knot and work the end in later) to
the color you are stopping close to the edge of your work (Figure 3).
Proceed with the new color for the desired number of rows and then
either return to the original color or add yet another color. When
you are finished, work the yarn ends carefully into the backside of
the matching color (Figure 4).

sts, k2tog, k1. Next row: (RS) Knit. Rep
last 2 rows until you have 2 sts left. BO all

NOTES

Collar is worked in the round on a circular
needle, with slits worked into the collar
for the leaf tie. Te slits are made by
working back and forth over groups
of stitches—by working these groups
separately for 5 rows, the sections are not
attached to each other, and this creates
open slits.

But most knitters quickly real ize that
pattern language is actually quite simple; rather
than an unbreakable code, it is truly a useful
shorthand. Curi ously, however, many knitters
never make the jump to following charted pat-
terns, failing to understand how logical and,
yes, easy to follow, they really are.
Charts have several advantages over row-by-
row knitting instructions written out in words:
They let you see at a glance what’s to be done
and what the pattern will look like knitted; they
help you recognize how the stitches relate to one
another; and they take up less space than writ-
ten instructions. These days, more and more
patterns are being charted instead of written
out row by row, and that means it is more im-
portant than ever to learn how to read them.
Once you add this skill to your repertoire, your
choices as a knitter expand nicely.
The Anatomy of a Chart
Charts are a visual representation of a knit-
ted fabric viewed from the right side. Charts are
plotted on graph paper so that one square repre-
sents one stitch and one horizontal row repre-
sents one row of knitting. Te symbols or colors
in the squares indicate how to work each stitch.
For colorwork charts, the colors represent yarn
colors; for texture work, the symbols represent
stitch manipulations. Unless otherwise speci-
fied, charts are read from the bottom to the top,
right to left for right-side rows, and left to right
for wrong-side rows. When knitting in the round
(where the right side of the knitting is always
facing out), all rows are read from right to left.
Most charts, including the ones in Inter-
weave Knits, are plotted on a square grid. Be-
cause knitted stitches tend to be wider than
they are tall, motifs worked from such charts
will appear squatter in the actual knitting than
they appear on the grid. To avoid this discrep-
ancy when designing your own project, you can
use proportional knitter’s graph paper (available
at knitting stores).
SYMBOLS
Tough not all publications use exactly the
same symbols (for example, some use a horizon-
tal dash to denote a purl stitch, others use a dot),
for the most part, the symbols represent what
the stitches look like when viewed from the right
side of the knitting. Symbols that slant to the
left represent left-slanting stitches. Symbols that
slant to the right represent right-slanting stitch-
es. Notice how the symbols in the charts at right
mimic the stitches in the knitted fabrics.
Because charts are presented as viewed from
the right side only, most symbols represent two
different maneuvers—one for right-side rows
and another for wrong-side rows. For example,
for stockinette stitch, you knit the stitches on
right-side rows and purl them on wrong-side
rows. However, charted stockinette stitch shows
only the right, or knit, side. A list of the most
common symbols and their right- and wrong-
side definitions is presented in the box below
the charts.
NO STITCH
Many stitch patterns, especially lace, involve
increases or decreases that cause the stitch
count to rise or fall, thereby requiring the num-
ber of boxes in a chart to vary from one row to
the next. For some patterns, these variations
are simply represented by uneven chart edges.
For other patterns, adding or subtracting boxes
at the edge of a chart may disrupt the vertical
stitch alignment. In these cases, a special sym-
bol for “no stitch” is used within the center of
the chart. These symbol s accommodate
“missing” stitches while they maintain the verti-
cal integrity of the pattern. In Interweave Knits,
missing stitches are represented by gray shaded
boxes. When you come to a shaded box, simply
skip over it and continue to the end of the row
as if it doesn’t exist.
ROW NUMBERS
Rows are numbered along the side of most
charts, especially long or complicated ones. Row
numbers appearing along the right edge denote
right-side rows to be read from right to left. Row
numbers appearing along the left edge denote
wrong-side rows to be read from left to right.
For example, if the number 1 is on the right
edge of the chart, that and all subsequent odd-
numbered rows are right-side rows; all even-
numbered rows are worked from the wrong side
(from left to right). With few exceptions, charts
in Inter weave Knits designate Row 1 as a right-
side row. For some patterns, this necessitates a
“set-up row” be worked prior to the first row of
the chart to get the stitches in the necessary se-
quence of knits and purls.
PATTERN REPEATS
All charts show at least one pattern repeat.
If the repeat is complex, more than one repeat
is charted to help you see how the individual
motifs look adjacent to each other.
In row-by-row instructions, pattern repeats
are flanked by asterisks or square brackets. On
charts, these repeats are outlined in heavy or
colored boxes, or they’re annotated at the lower
or upper edge of the chart.
Some patterns that are worked back and
forth in rows require extra stitches to balance a
charted pattern. In row-by-row instructions,
such patterns are reported as repeating over a
multiple of a number of stitches plus extra
stitches (e.g., balanced 2×2 ribbing worked back
and forth is a multiple of 4 stitches plus 2). On

Many beginning knitters pale at the sight of a knitting pattern,
temporarily paralyzed by the seemingly complicated abbreviations and
symbols (k2tog, ssk, brackets, parentheses, asterisks, . . .).

charts, these balancing stitches appear at the
right and left margins of the chart, with the re-
peat clearly marked in between. On right-side
rows, work from right to left, working the
stitches on the right edge once, then the repeat
as many times as necessary, and end by working
the stitches on the left edge once. On wrong-
side rows, work from left to right, working the
stitches on the left edge once, the repeat box as
many times as necessary, and end by working
the stitches on the right edge once.
Charts for multisized garments will most
likely have different numbers of edge stitches
for the different sizes. Read the instructions
and chart carefully and be sure to begin and end
as specified for the size you are making.
HELPFUL HINTS
• If a chart is so small or complicated that it
causes your eyes to strain, copy it onto larger
graph paper or make a photocopy enlarge-
ment. If the chart involves colorwork and you
don’t have access to a color photocopier, use
colored pencils or markers to color in the ap-
propriate boxes.
• Keep your place while working a chart by
holding a straightedge or row finder on the
chart and using a row counter on your knit-
ting needle. You can place the straightedge
either above or below the row you’re working
on; placing it on the row above will let you see
how the stitches relate to the previous row
(the one you just knitted). Once you’ve
worked a couple of repeats from the chart,
you may be able to look at your knitting
rather than the chart to figure out what
comes next.
• If you plan to design a sweater or other piece
around a charted design, be sure to center the
design over the center stitch of the piece.
Otherwise, you will end up with a partial re-
peat at one edge that isn’t mirrored at the
other.

slightly overlap Tier 1, shingle-fashion,
as shown in photograph. Work even in St
st for 6 more rows, ending with a RS row.
Break yarn and set aside. Tiers 3 and 4:
Work as for Tier 2, placing each tier on top
of the previous one for the joining row.
Tier 5: Work as for Tier 2 until the joining
row has been completed; do not work any

Skill Level Easy
Finished Size About 5¼" wide and 38" long.
Note: Your exact finished size may be differ-
ent because of individual variations in the
felting process—that’s part of the allure.
Yarn Classic Elite Classic One Fifty (100%
merino; 150 yd [137 m]/50 g; DK #3 Light):
#7232 orchid (purple; A) 2 balls; #7251 lilac
(light purple; B) and #7281 sprout (green; C),
1 ball each.
Needles Size 10 (6 mm). Adjust needle size
if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions Tapestry needle; markers (m); dress-
maker’s water-soluble fabric marker (avail-
able at fabric stores) in contrasting color(s) to
A and B; scissors; size J/10 (6 mm) crochet
hook; mesh lingerie bag for felting.
Gauge 14 sts and 22 rows = 4" in reverse
stockinette stitch (rev St st), before felting.
SCARF
Before beginning to knit, wind off about 3 yd
of A and set aside to use later for embroidery.
With A, CO 42 sts. Work even in rev St st
(purl RS rows; knit WS rows) until both balls
of A have been used up (about 200 rows).
Change to B and work even in rev St st until
only about 48" of B is left (about 100 rows)—
piece measures about 54" from CO, but exact
length is not critical. BO all sts.
FINISHING
Weave in loose ends.
CROCHET RINGS (MAKE 8)
With C and crochet hook, ch 30 (see Glos-
sary). Join with a slip st to form ring. Cut
yarn, leaving a 12" tail. Make 7 more crochet
rings in the same manner. On RS of scarf,
count up 80 rows from CO edge at the A end
of the scarf and draw a line across the scarf
with water-soluble fabric marker to mark
embroidery area. Using tails, sew crocheted
rings randomly to RS of scarf between CO
edge and marker line as shown in photo-
graph. With A threaded on a tapestry needle,
sew a line of basting sts around the open cen-
ter of each crochet ring as close as possible to
inside edge of the ring. With RS still facing,
draw up ends of basting thread tightly to
form a “bubble” of fabric in the center of each
ring. Tie ends of basting thread securely so
bubbles will maintain their shape throughout
the felting process.
FELTING
Place scarf in lingerie bag. Add a small
amount of mild detergent and run through
normal washing-machine cycle set for a small
load and hot water, stopping the washer pe-
riodically to check felting progress. Note: It
may take more than one cycle to achieve the
desired amount of felting. When piece is suf-
ficiently felted and the individual stitches are
no longer visible, remove scarf from washer,
pull into shape, and allow to dry flat.
SLIT
Using water-soluble fabric marker, draw
a line to indicate the position of a 3½" slit
centered on the B end of the scarf, beg
about 4½" down from BO edge. Carefully
cut slit open along marked line. Te felted
fabric will not ravel and the edges of the
slit will need no additional reinforcement.

FINISHING
Weave in loose ends. Felting: Place scarf in

place in the washing machine with some old
T-shirts or an old sheet. To felt a larger piece
(bigger than the scarf shown here), place it
directly in the washing machine with similar
items without the washing bag. Te goal is to
have a large enough load that the machine will
balance properly while avoiding clothes that
could transfer color or lint to your finished
item. Set the machine for a hot wash, add

NOTE

Te work starts by knitting the border
at one end of the scarf. You then pick up
the stitches along the edge of the border
and knit the side borders and snowflake
pattern that make up the body of the scarf
at the same time. When the scarf is long
enough, you’ll knit the border for the far
end and graft it to the body of the scarf.

plete patterns, finishing with row 1. Bind off
loosely but do not break the yarn. Don’t be
alarmed if the edging does not look as lacy at
this stage; it will look much lacier after you’ve
washed and blocked it. You can gauge its final
appearance by stretching a small portion
of the knitting between the fingers of both
hands.
Pick up and knit 1 st in each of the 73 loops
formed along the straight edge of the begin-
ning border (73 sts).
Divide the border and snowflake sts as
follows: K8, place marker, k15, k2tog, k23,
k2tog, k15, place marker, k8 (71 sts).
Row 1: Work row 1 of the right border pat-
tern, slip marker, work row 1 of the snow-
flake pattern, slip marker, work row 1 of the
left border pattern.
Row 2: Work row 2 of the left border pattern,
slip marker, work row 2 of the snowflake
pattern, slip marker, work row 2 of the right
border pattern.
Continue working the right border, snow-
flake, and left border patterns across the
rows, following the row repeat instructions
for each pattern, until there are 12 snow-
flake motifs in the center panel or the scarf
is the length you prefer with a multiple of
3 snowflake motifs. End with row 1 of the
snowflake pattern and row 13 of the right
and left border patterns.
Last row: K9, remove marker, k55, remove
marker, k9 (73 sts). Leave the stitches on a
spare needle or stitch holder and set the scarf
aside.
CO 10 sts loosely. Following the directions
for the end border pattern, work 12 complete
patterns, finishing with row 1. BO loosely.
Pick up the loops along the straight edge of
the end border and place them on a knitting
needle. Using the wool or tapestry needle
threaded with yarn, graft the border loops
with the scarf stitches on the spare needle.

Row 1: Yo, k2tog, kl, (k2tog, yo) twice,

Photocopy the pattern onto single sheets of paper. Affi x them to a magnetic
board with a line finder to help you keep your place. Leave your original pattern at
home and take a copy when you travel with your knitting.

Use stitch markers to separate different patterns or pattern repeats.


Use different colors for the first and last stitch markers on the row. One of the
colors falling at the beginning of the row will indicate a right-side or pattern row;
the other color at the beginning of the row will indicate a
wrong-side row.

If you make an error and have to rip out some of the knitting, you’ll find it
easier to pick up the stitches if you rip back to the first knit row beyond the error
and use a needle one size smaller than you’re knitting with. Put the smaller
needle aside as soon as you have worked the stitches from it.

Te ordinary can become
the extraordinary when
embellishments, edgings,
and trims are added to
an accessory. Here are
some simple and basic
finishing details that you
will use time and time
again.

Details
Backstitch
*Insert threaded needle at the right side of a
stitch, then back out at the left side of a stitch
two stitches away. Insert needle again between
the first two stitches and bring it out two
stitches away. Repeat from * as desired.
Blanket Stitch
Working from left to right, bring threaded
needle in and out of the knitted background,
always keeping the needle on top of the work-
ing yarn.

Chain Stitch
Bring threaded needle out from back to
front at center of a knitted stitch. Form a
short loop and insert needle back where it
came out. Keeping the loop under the nee-
dle, bring needle back out in center of next
stitch to the right.
Crochet Chain Stitch Embroidery
Holding the yarn under the background,
insert crochet hook through the center of
a knitted stitch, pull up a loop, *insert
hook into the center of the next stitch to
the right, pull up a second loop through
the first loop on the hook. Repeat from *.
Duplicate Stitch
Horizontal: Bring threaded needle out
from back to front at the base of the V of
the knitted stitch you want to cover.
*Working right to left, pass needle in and
out under the stitch in the row above it
and back into the base of the same stitch.
Bring needle back out at the base of the V
of the next stitch to the left. Repeat from
* for desired number of stitches.
Vertical: Beginning at lowest point, work
as for horizontal duplicate stitch, ending
by bringing the needle back out at the base
of the stitch directly above the stitch just
worked.
French Knot
Bring threaded needle out of knitted
background from back to front, wrap
yarn around needle one to three times,
and use your thumb to hold the wraps
in place while you insert needle into
background a short distance from where
it came out. Pull the needle through the
wraps into the background.
Fringe (Applied Fringe)
Cut several strands of yarn (the more strands,
the thicker the fringe) two times the desired
fringe length, plus about 1" for knotting. Fold
the yarn in half. Insert a crochet hook into the
knitted piece from back to front, catch the
folded yarn, and pull it through the knitting.
Draw the yarn ends through the loop and pull
to tighten. Trim ends to even lengths.
Edgings
Two-Color Plaited Tie
Knot four strands (two light, two dark, and
each 1½ times the desired finished length) in
an overhand knot at one end. Hook or pin this
end to secure it. Position the strands so that
the light strands are on the outside and the
dark ones on the inside. Working from the
outside, take the left strand over its nearest
center strand, and the right strand over its
nearest center strand as well as the strand just
placed in the center. Continue placing the
strands in the center, alternating sides so that
like-colored strands form a V shape.

Figure 4
Tassel
To make a tassel, cut a piece of cardboard 3–5" wide and 1" longer than the desired length
of your tassel. Beginning and ending at the same bottom edge, securely wrap yarn around
cardboard (Figure 3), but not too tight, until you reach the desired fullness of the tassel.
(Tip: If you have to make more than one tassel per piece, count the number of wraps so your
tassels will be consistent.) Cut a length of yarn at least 12" long and thread through a tap-
estry needle. Slip needle underneath wrapped yarn at upper edge, pull together tightly, and
fasten with a knot. Leave the yarn tail to sew tassel to work. Cut through yarn at lower edge.
Take a second length of yarn and wrap it securely around the tassel several times just below
the top-edge knot (Figure 4). Knot securely, thread ends onto tapestry needle, and pull to
center of tassel. Trim ends even at bottom edge.
Figure 5
Figure 6
Figure 7
Pom-Pom
Cut two circles of cardboard, each ½" larger
than desired finished pom-pom width. Cut a
small circle out of the center and a small
wedge out of the side of each circle (Figure 5).
Tie a strand of yarn between the circles, hold
circles together and wrap with yarn—the
more wraps, the thicker the pom-pom. Cut
between the circles and knot the tie strand
tightly (Figure 6). Place pom-pom between
two smaller cardboard circles held together
with a needle and trim the edges (Figure 7).
Figure 1 Figure 2
Twisted Fringe (Twisted Cord)
Cut several lengths of yarn about five times
the desired finished cord length. Fold the
strands in half to form two equal groups.
Anchor the strands at the fold by looping
them over a doorknob. Holding one group in
each hand, twist each group tightly in a
clockwise direction until they begin to kink
(Figure 1). Put both groups in one hand, then
release them, allowing them to twist around
each other counterclockwise. Smooth out the
twists so that they are uniform along the
length of the cord. Knot the ends (Figure 2).

Wet-Blocking
By definition wet-blocking uses more moisture than steam-blocking and can be used to stretch
and enlarge a knitted piece (although loosely knitted pieces stretch more easily than tightly
knitted ones, and any extra inches you gain in width, you may lose in length). There are three
degrees of wet-blocking, depending on the amount of moisture added to the knitted fabric.
Spray-Blocking
Spray-blocking is the mildest form of wet-blocking. It works equally well for all fibers—although
silks and synthetics require more wetness than wool—and it allows for total control over tem-
perature, dampness, and finished texture because you are not restricted to the temperature and
amount of steam that comes out of your iron, and you can gently pat and shape the piece with
your hands while you work. Pin the handknit to shape right side up on a padded surface placed
away from direct sun or heat. Fill a spray bottle with cool tap water and spritz a fine, even mist
over the piece. Use your hands to gently pat the moisture into the handknit, if desired, but be
careful not to flatten any textured stitches.
Wet-Wrapping
Wet-wrapping imparts moisture deeper into the fibers and is appropriate for all types of yarn,
especially cotton and acrylic, which are less resilient than wool and require more moisture
penetration to reshape stitches. To wet-wrap, thoroughly soak a large bath towel in water, then
put it through the spin cycle of a washing machine to remove excess moisture. Place the hand-
knit on top of the towel, then roll the two together jelly-roll fashion. Let the bundle sit until
the handknit is completely damp, overnight if necessary. Unroll the towel, remove the hand-
knit, and pin it out to measurements on a padded surface away from direct sun or heat.
Immersion
Immersion imparts moisture thoroughly through the fibers and allows complete reshaping. It
is appropriate for all fiber types and particularly ideal for heavily ribbed or cabled fabrics or
fabrics that have taken on a biased slant during knitting. It is also the method to use after
washing a handknit. To immerse a handknit, turn it inside out and soak it in a basin of luke-
warm water for about twenty minutes or until thoroughly wet, gently squeezing water through
the piece if necessary. Drain the water, carry the wet handknit in a bundle to the washing
machine, and put it through the spin cycle (or roll it in dry towels) to remove excess moisture.
Do not twist or wring the handknit. Shape the piece right side up on a padded surface, using
pins (and blocking wires) as necessary.
BLOCKING
TIPS
• Experiment with blocking your
gauge swatch before you block
an actual knitted piece.
• Do not rub, twist, or wring a
handknit. Doing so may distort
the stitches beyond correction.
• Before blocking, weave in
all loose ends—the blocking
process will help secure the
ends in place.
• It is preferable to block indi-
vidual pieces before sewing
them together. Blocking makes
the sewing process easier, and
the results of blocking are more
consistent when you work with
a single layer of fabric. You can
block a garment that has been
sewed together, but the results
may not be as good.
• Many experts warn against
blocking ribbing, which will lose
its natural elasticity if blocked
while stretched open. How-
ever, ribbing can be successfully
blocked if you squeeze it into its
most contracted state (so that all
the purl stitches recede behind
the knit stitches) before you
apply moisture.
• Allow the blocked handknit to air-
dry completely before moving it.

FINISHING
Graft rem sts as shown on page 50. Cut a
short piece of yarn and tie a knot through the
rem loop after grafting to prevent raveling.
Weave in loose ends. Block as foll: Beg at one
corner, thread a thick nylon cord (the sts will
stick on cotton, wool, or silk cord) loosely
from back to front through each tooth point.
Tie the ends of the cord together. Toroughly
wet piece and squeeze out excess moisture.
Using T-pins on a flat surface, pin the three
points of the triangle to give the shawl its ba-
sic shape and size. Connect the corner T-pins
with a separate length of cord to mark final
dimensions. Pull the cord between each tooth
out to this outer cord and anchor with T-pins.
Always pin into the loops formed by the cord,
not into the shawl. Adjust the pins and cord
as necessary until the shawl is stretched taut.

NOTES

You may find it helpful to place markers
between each repeat of the lace pattern.

Mark the shoulder stitches by placing a
removable marker or safety pin in the
stitch itself (not between stitches on the
needle), and move these markers up every
few rows as you work.

Te first stitch of every row is slipped
purlwise with yarn in front (pwise wyf).
Tis will create an attractive “chain” edge
along the sides of your shawl.

To ensure an even slipped-stitch edge,
keep yarn taut while slipping the first
stitch, then move the yarn over the needle
from front to back and pull it taut again
before knitting the next stitch.

Work the decorative bind off very loosely,
using a size larger needle to work this row
if necessary.

hook, use the crochet chain provisional CO

than you need to cast on. With needle, working yarn, and beginning two stitches
from end of chain, pick up and knit one stitch through the back loop of each crochet
chain (Figure 1) for desired number of stitches. Work the piece as desired, and
when you’re ready to work in the opposite direction, pull out the crochet chain to
expose live stitches (Figure 2).

NOTES

To wear, put one hole over head, wrap
the piece under the arm, across the back,
under the second arm to the front, and
then put the second hole over the head.

When first worked, the head openings will
seem small, but the elasticity of the lace
will allow the holes to stretch to fit over the
head. If a larger head opening is desired,
work more rows of garter stitch on either
side of the head opening.

For larger wrap than shown, work more
repeats of little arrowhead lace between
the back “seam” and the beginning of
bound-off head openings. Each 4-row
pattern repeat added will lengthen each
half of the wrap by about 1⅞", which will
add about 3¾" to the total length of the
wrap.

NOTES

Shawl begins in the center of the long side
at the top and is shaped by increasing one
stitch on either side of center and one
stitch inside each 2-stitch garter stitch
border every RS row. Te bind-off edge
forms the two short sides of the shawl.

Use markers to set off the center stitch
and the garter stitch edges at each side as
indicated by green lines on the charts. You
may also find it helpful to use markers to set
off each full pattern repeat as indicated by
the red boxes on the charts.

When you have worked to the end of
Chart 1, the number of stitches will have
increased enough to add 2 more repeats
of the main pattern on either side of the
center stitch. For example, the first time
you repeat just Rows 9–20, there will be
enough stitches for 3 pattern repeats on
each side of the center stitch, the follow-
ing time there will be enough stitches for
5 pattern repeats on each side of center,
and so on, until there are 13 pattern re-

To knit in the round, you’ ll need an array
of sizes in double-pointed (sets of four or five)
and circular needles. Circular needles are
available in different lengths, the most com-
mon being 16", 24", and 29". Te circular nee-
dle used must be shorter than the circumfer-
ence of the garment. You can compact the
stitches on the needle, but you can’t stretch
out work that is too narrow. Te shortest cir-
cular needle available is 9" so any garment
with a narrower ci rcumference must be
worked on double-pointed needles that can
accommodate as little as one stitch per needle.
Socks or gloves can be worked on a 9" circular
needle but are more easily worked on double-
pointed needles. A 16" needle is a good length
of a hat with a 21" circumference, but you’ ll
need to switch to double-pointed needles as
you begin decreasing to shape the crown. Te
pattern will designate what size and length
circular needle is recommended or whether
double-pointed needles are better. Te abbre-
viation for double-pointed needles is dpn’s
and many knitters refer to them by the
abbreviation.
Pattern directions for circular knitting call
the rows “rounds.” Te major difference be-
tween working in rounds and working back
and forth in rows is that when you’re working
in rounds, you don’t turn the work. Since the
right side of the work is always facing you,
you don’t need to change knit stitches to purl
stitches on the wrong side of the work. For
this reason, if you are working in rounds in
stockinette stitch, every stitch will be a knit
stitch. If you are working rounds in ribbing,
simply work each stitch as it appears to main-
tain the continuity of the rib.
Te trickiest part of circular knitting is get-
ting started. To knit in the round on circular
needles, cast on the recommended number of
stitches, just as you would if working on
straight needles. Make sure all the cast-on
stitches are hanging below the needle and are
not twisted around the needle. (Tis is the most
common error—stitches get twisted in the
process of casting on and the only alternative
is to rip out and cast on again.) Now hold one
needle tip in each hand with the end of the
needle connected to the working yarn in your
right hand. Depending on the stitch pattern,
knit or purl into the first stitch on the left-hand
needle—this was the first cast-on stitch. Again,
be careful not to twist stitches. After this first
connecting stitch is made, work the rest of the
round according to pattern. You may want to
place a stitch marker on the needle to help you
keep track of the first stitch of the round. You’ll
slip this marker as you work each round.
If you’re using double-pointed needles,
after casting the stitches on to one needle,
divide the total number of stitches evenly
Being able to knit circular to
create a tubular fabric has one
big advantage—no seams. Plus,
if you’re knitting stockinette, you
never have to purl!

A.K.A. KNITTING
IN THE ROUND
Left: You can
knit on a variety of
needles made from

between three or four needles (needles usu-
ally come in sets of four or five, but you need
one to knit with) by sliding stitches over from
either end (Figure 1).
Once you have the stitches on your nee-
dles, arrange them in a triangle (or four nee-
dles in a square) so that the cast-on edge faces
the inside. Now you’re ready to join your
work. With the spare needle, begin to knit
with the yarn from the right-hand needle,
pulling the first stitch firmly to eliminate a
gap (Figure 2). After the first stitch use a
marker to mark the beginning of each new
round. Work to the end of the first needle
and use that needle as a spare to work stitch-
es from the next needle. Continue in this
manner around.
Figure 1. Divide the stitches among three
(or four) double-pointed needles.
Figure 2. Join for circular knitting by work-
ing the first cast-on stitch.
Knitting color stripes in the round can result in jogs at the
"seam" line where each new round begins. Tis occurs because the
first stitch in the row above a color change is actually the last
stitch of the previous row of color, so it looks like you didn’t
change colors soon enough. (Tis happens because when you’re
knitting in the round you’re actually knitting a spiral, not a circle.)
In Meg Swansen's Knitting (Interweave, 1999), Meg offers an inge-
nious technique for eliminating these jogs when working solid-
color stripes of two or more rounds.
Work the first stripe (let's call that color A) for the desired
number of rounds, change colors (color B) and knit one round.
Work the first stitch of the second round with color B as fol-
lows: Pick up the right side of the stitch in the row below the
stitch on the needle (it will be color A), put it on the left needle
and knit it together with the first stitch on the needle. You will
have worked the first stitch of the round twice, but because you
work into the stitch below the one on the needle the second time,
you have only worked it for one round and it appears as if it were
worked just once.
Te jog between the two colors disappears and the beginning
of the round for color changes only is shifted one stitch to the left.
Note: Do not change the position of markers required for the
placement of any shaping decreases or increases (such as ones
used for waist shaping).
Continue working as many rounds as you want with color B.
To change to another color, simple repeat the process, working
the first stitch of the round a second time by picking up the stitch
in the row below the stitch on the needle and knitting it together
with the first stitch on the needle, thereby shifting the beginning
of the round one more stitch to the left for color changes.
For a video clip of this technique, Eunny Jang demonstrates two
ways to avoid the jog on Knitting Daily TV Episode 311.
Join stitches for circular knitting by working
the first stitch casted on.

Skill Level Intermediate
Finished Size 20" circumference and 8" high
from brim to top, after blocking.
Yarn Nashua Handknits Julia (50%
wool, 25% kid mohair, 25% alpaca; 93 yd
[84 m]/50 g; Worsted #4 Medium): #4936
blue thyme, 2 skeins. Yarn distributed by
Westminster Fibers.
Needles Size 5 (3.75 mm): 16" circular (cir)
and set of 4 double-pointed (dpn). Adjust
needle size if necessary to obtain the correct
gauge.
Notions Stitch holder; cable needle (cn);
tapestry needle.
Gauge 5½ sts and 7 rows = 1" in St st (see
Notes on hat gauge).
NOTES

After blocking hat, the bottom half will
“grow” slightly and the stitches will
become slightly larger, changing the
gauge to about 4½ stitches per inch. Be
sure to check gauge while hat is being
worked, to match the 5½ sts per inch
before blocking.
HAT

BRIM
*Purl 1 rnd, knit 1 rnd; rep from * until brim
measures 1", ending with a knit rnd, and plac-
ing m in the middle of the last rnd, directly
opposite the end-of-rnd m, to indicate center
front. Mark placement of earflaps: Earflap
width is a personal choice; it can range for 3"
for a baby to 5" or more for an adult. Transfer
sts to waste yarn. Try hat on with end-of-rnd
m at the back. Use safety pins or remov-
able markers to indicate where you would
like each earflap to begin and end. Take the
hat off and fine-tune the positions of the
earflaps so that both earflaps have the same
even number of sts, and so that the edges
of the earflaps are the same distance from
center front and back markers. Earflaps can
be closer together at the back of the head to
leave a wider opening between them for the
face. Next rnd: BO purlwise to marked sts
of first earflap, purl earflap sts, BO purlwise
to marked sts of second earflap, purl earflap
sts, BO purlwise to end of rnd—2 groups of
earflap sts rem. Place sts for one earflap on a
holder.
EARFLAPS (Make 2)
With RS facing, join yarn to earflap sts, ready
to work a RS row. Work garter st back and
forth in rows (knit all sts every row) until
piece measures 1". Dec row: (RS) K2, ssk,
work to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2—2 sts dec’d. Knit
1 (WS) row even. Rep the last 2 rows as neces-
sary until 6 sts rem, ending with a WS row.
Next row: (RS) K2, k2tog, k2—5 sts rem.
With WS facing, BO all sts.
FINISHING
Weave in loose ends. Anything beyond that
is up to you—add colorful braids, tassels,
pom-poms, or embroidery to the earflaps
and/or crown. For more variations, work the
straight section of the hat in a fancy stitch or
color pattern, or two! Use your imagination
for infinite possibilities.

Stitch Guide
Knit into Back, Purl into Front Increase
(k1b-p1f inc): Knit into the back of next st,
then purl into the front of same st, and slip st
from needle—1 st inc’d; 2 sts made from 1 st.
Sssk: Slip 3 sts individually kwise, insert left
needle tip into the fronts of these 3 sts, and
use the right needle to knit them tog through
their back loops.
NOTES

Te hat is worked in the round beginning
at the top of the crown for the stockinette
lining and worked downward to the knit-
and-purl textured brim. Te lace outer
layer is worked upward from the textured
brim to the top of the crown.

When working the brim and lace outer
layer, the wrong (purl) side of the lining
will be on the outside of the work. Tis
allows the right (knit) side of the lining
to show through the lace fabric when the
stockinette lining is tucked inside the
finished hat.

Some rounds of the lace pattern have
yarnovers at the beginning and end of
the round. For these rounds, you may
find it helpful to make the final yarnover
and then immediately work the first
stitch of the next rnd (the yarnover from
the beginning of the round), in order to
avoid accidentally dropping one of the
yarnovers.

Pay close attention to any double yarn-
overs in the lace pattern to make sure that
you work each double yarnover as p1, k1
on the following even-numbered round as
shown on chart and do not accidentally
drop one of the yarnover loops.
LINING
With orange and smaller dpn, CO 6 sts. Arrange
sts evenly on 3 dpn (2 sts each needle) place
marker (pm), and join for working in the rnd,
being careful not to twist sts. Knit 1 rnd.
Rnd 1: *K1b-p1f inc (see Stitch Guide); rep
from * to end of rnd—12 sts; 4 sts on each
needle.
Even-Numbered Rnds 2–38: Knit.
Rnd 3: *K1; k1b-p1f inc; rep from * to
end—18 sts; 6 sts on each needle.
Rnd 5: *K2, k1b-p1f inc; rep from * to
end—24 sts; 8 sts on each needle.
Rnd 7: *K3, k1b-p1f inc; rep from * to
end—30 sts; 10 sts on each needle.
Rnd 9: *K4, k1b-p1f inc; rep from * to
end—36 sts; 12 sts on each needle.
Rnd 11: *K5, k1b-p1f inc; rep from * to
end—42 sts; 14 sts on each needle.
Odd-Numbered Rnds 13–39: Cont in this
manner, working 1 more st before the inc in
every odd-numbered rnd until Rnd 39 has
been completed and changing to smaller cir
when there are too many sts to fit on the
dpn—126 sts.
Rnd 40: Knit.
Change to smaller cir needle if you have not
already done so. Work even in St st until piece
measures 4" from last inc rnd (about 45 rnds
St st), and about 7½" from beg. Cut orange
yarn, leaving an 8" tail.
BRIM
Push the lining through the center of the
needle so the purl side of the lining is on the
outside of the rnd (see Notes). With WS of
lining facing you, join red yarn. Next rnd:
(RS of brim; WS of lining) K19, k2tog; rep
from * to end—120 sts. Work Rnds 1–21 of
Diagonal Rib chart—brim measures about
1½", and piece measures about 9" from CO.
Change to larger cir needle and knit 1 rnd.
With smaller cir needle and knit side of lining
facing, slip the smaller needle into each st of
first red yarn rnd to pick up 120 sts; these sts
are just picked up and placed on the needle
without working them, not picked up and
knit. Fold brim in half along the purled fold
line from Rnd 11 of chart to bring the two
needles tog with RS of brim facing outward,
and needle with picked-up lining sts in back
of needle with live brim sts. Holding both
needles tog in the left hand, *k2tog to join
1 brim st tog with 1 lining st; rep from * to
end—still 120 sts.
LACE OUTER LAYER
Next rnd: *K2, k2tog; rep from * to end of
rnd—90 sts rem. Change to Lace chart, and
rep Rnds 1–24 of chart 2 times, then work
Rnds 25–45 once, changing to larger dpn
when there are too few sts to fit around the
cir needle—10 sts rem; 69 lace patt rnds
completed; piece measures about 8¼" from
purled fold line of brim. Cut yarn, leaving an
8" tail. Tread tail on tapestry needle, draw
through rem sts drawstring-fashion, pull
tight to close top of crown. Tuck lining in-
side hat so St st side of lining shows through
the openwork lace patt. Use tail from outer
lace layer to stitch the center of both crowns
tog and fasten off on WS of hat.
FINISHING
Weave loose ends. Block to measurements.

NOTES

Te earflaps are worked separately
back and forth in short rows after the
initial cast on and set-up row. When
the earflaps have been completed, work
continues in the round to the end.

Because this project is worked with
two strands of yarn held together, take
particular care to insert the needle into
both strands and not accidentally split
the doubled working strand into two
separate stitches.

When counting stitches, count each
slipped stitch and its companion
yarnover as one stitch. In other words,
do not count the yarnovers as stitches in
themselves.

Each yarnover appears to “straddle”
its companion stitch, which should
make it easy to identify them as a pair
to be worked together on the next row
or round. If you are having diffi culty
knitting or purling two stitches together,
make sure that you are trying to work
the yarnover together with the correct
stitch. Spreading the stitches out along
the needle can help align the yarnovers
with their respective mates.

Make sure that you don’t accidentally
drop any yarnovers that occur at the end
of a needle.

Because the slipped-stitch-yarnover pairs
alternate positions from round to round,
when one round ends with a slipped-
stitch-yarnover pair, the following round
will begin with a slipped-stitch-yarnover
pair. Te result is that there will be two
slipped-stitch-yarnover pairs next to
each other at the end-of-round marker.
Be sure to bring the yarn all the way
around the needle and to the front of the
work for the first yarnover so that each
slipped stitch will have its own yarnover.

When working a k3tog decrease, you will
knit together five actual loops on the
needle: two knit stitches with their com-
panion yarnovers, and the purled stitch
between the knit stitch/yarnover pairs.

Te earflaps are set slightly toward the
back of the hat, with less distance be-
tween them at the nape of the neck than
at the front of the forehead; they are not
exactly centered on each side of the hat.

LACE
TIPS

All you need to know to
knit lace is how to make
yarnovers and decreases
and how to count stitches.

Count stitches after every
pattern row to make sure
you haven’t inadvertently
added or missed a yarnover
or decrease.

To ensure that the cast-on
edge will stretch along the
lace pattern, choose a very
elastic cast-on such as the
old Norwegian or knitted
method.

Don’t knit lace patterns
when you’re tired or have
lots of distractions or poor
light. It’s all too easy to
make errors.

Use stitch markers to
separate individual pattern
repeats, particularly if
you’re working a compli-
cated pattern.

In Western countries, socks are typically
worked from the leg down to the toe (in many
Eastern countries, they’re worked in the oppo-
site direction). The size is determined by the
circumference of the widest part of the foot.
For your first pair of socks, let’s follow the
conventional top-down construction technique.
For this example, we’ll use a set of four double-
pointed needles. We’ l l start by casting on
stitches for the cuff, work the cuff and leg in
rounds to the heel, work the heel flap in rows,
shape the heel with short-rows, pick up stitches
for the gussets, then decrease the gussets while
working in rounds to the toe. We’ ll shape the
toe along the side in a typical wedge style, and
finally, finish off the tip with a few Kitchener
stitches. Te sock in the photograph (page 82)
is a woman’s medium (8" foot circumference)
worked with worsted-weight yarn on size 7 (4.5
mm) needles.
Before you can begin, you need to know your
gauge. Just like you’ve been instructed that if
you want a sweater to fit, you need to be sure
that your gauge matches the one that’s called for
in the pattern if you want your socks to fit.
Casting On
For our example here, we’ll make a woman’s
medium sock with worsted-weight yarn at a
gauge of 5 stitches to the inch on size 7 (4.5 mm)
needles. To begin, you’ll need to get the appro-
priate number of stitches onto your needles—40
in our case. Regardless of your needle choice,
the first step—casting on—is the same. Tere
are a number of cast-on methods, but for socks
you’ ll want to choose one that is both sturdy
and flexible. My two favorite methods are the
long-tail (also called the Continental; see Glos-
sary) and the old Norwegian cast-on (see box,
page 95). Both methods involve the interlacing
of two yarn ends, which adds stability and
strength. Both methods have suffi cient give to
allow the sock to stretch over your heel.

Socks instructions follow a
simple formula of percentages
(right)—100% of the stitches
are worked for the leg, 50% are
worked for the heel, 100% are
worked for the foot. The toe is
decreased gradually to 50%,
then rapidly to about 20%. This
sock (left) was knitted with
worsted-weight yarn at a gauge
of 5 stitches to the inch on size
7 needles.
are all aligned the same way on the needles
with the straight edge of the cast-on at the bot-
tom of every needle. If the straight edge wraps
around one of the needles, the stitches are said
to be twisted and you’ll end up knitting a helix.
If this happens, the only solution is to rip out
all of the stitches and begin again.
Cuff
To prevent the
edge from curling,
the first inch (or
more) of a sock is
worked in a non-
curling stitch pat-
tern, most com-
monly a rib. Not only do ribs lie flat, they also
have a tendency to draw in (allowing for stretch),
which helps to give a sock a snug fit. The draw-in
results from the juxtaposition of knit and purl
stitches. The more boundaries there are between
knit and purl stitches, the greater the draw-in.
In our sock, we’ll work the cuff in double rib
(k2, p2) for 2".
Leg
Continue working even in stockinette stitch
(knit every stitch of every round) until the leg
measures the desired length from the cast-on
row to the beginning of the heel.
Heel Flap
The heel flap is the extra bit of knitting
that extends along the back of the heel from
the ankle bone to the base of the foot. For
our sock, the heel flap is worked back and
forth in rows on half of the total number of
stitches. Rearrange the stitches, if necessary,
so that all of the heel stitches are on one
needle (the other half of the stitches will be
worked later for the instep). Work the heel
stitches back and forth in rows as follows:
Row 1: (RS) *Sl 1 purlwise with yarn in back
(wyb), k1; rep from *.
Row 2: (WS) Sl 1 purlwise with yarn in front
(wyf), purl to end.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 for the specified number
of rows, ending with a wrongside row so that
the next row will be a right-side row. For our
Step 1: Using the method of your choice, cast on
the recommended number of stitches onto a
single needle.
Step 2: Distribute the stitches as evenly as pos-
sible among three double-pointed needles.
Join for Working in the Round
To begin working in rounds, you’ll need to
join the first cast-on stitch with the last cast-
on stitch to form a ring (page 83).
Most patterns will instruct you to place a
marker on the needle when you join for work-
ing rounds. This is so you can keep track of
where one round ends and the next one begins,
and it is especially helpful if you’re working a
color or texture pattern. To prevent the marker
from fal ling off the needle if you’re using
double-pointed or two circular needles, slip
the marker on the needle between the second-
to-last and last stitches of the round.
When you join the cast-on stitches for
working in rounds, you must be careful not to
let the stitches twist or spiral around the nee-
dles. Take a minute to ensure that the stitches

Figure 1
example, we’ll work the heel flap for a total of
20 rows—there will be 10 elongated stitches
in the main fabric of the flap and 10 chain sel-
vedge stitches.
Heel Turn
You’re now ready to work the magical part
of a sock—the heel turn. The instructions are
basically the same, no matter what size sock
you’re knitting. The heel is shaped with short-
rows, which are nothing more than partial
(“short”) rows worked on just the center
stitches. This causes the center area to have
more rows of knitting, making it longer than
the edges, which causes that magical cup
shape. Work the short-rows as follows:
Figure 2
Simple Join
Just like the name implies, this method
is simple. Just start knitting, beginning
with the first cast-on stitch. There will
be a small gap at the join, but this can
be effectively tidied up when the cast-on
tail is woven in later.
Crossover Join
Step 1: Slip the first cast-on stitch (it will
be on the left needle tip) onto the right
needle (Figure 1).
Step 2: With the left needle, pick up the
last cast-on stitch (now the second stitch
on the right needle), bring it up over the top of
the previously moved stitch (Figure 2), and
place it on the left needle tip (Figure 3).
Te first and last stitches have exchanged
places and the last stitch cast on surrounds
the first.
Two-End Join
Work the first two or three stitches of the
round with both ends of yarn (the one
attached to the ball and the tail end) that
were used for the cast-on. After you have
worked several stitches, drop the tail end
and continue on with the yarn attached
to the ball. On the next round, remember
that the joining stitches were worked with
a double strand of yarn and be sure to work
the two strands together as though they were
a single stitch.
Figure 1
Figure 2
Figure 3
Ways to Join for Working in Rounds
Row 1: (RS) Knit to 2 stitches beyond the
center of the heel stitches (in our example, we
have 20 heel stitches, so we’ ll knit across 12
of them), ssk (see Glossary), k1 (Figure 1).
Row 2: (WS) Sl 1 purlwise wyf, p5, p2tog, p1
(Figure 2).
Row 3: (RS) Sl 1 purlwise with yarn in back
(wyb), knit to 1 stitch before the gap formed
on the previous row (in our example, we’ ll
knit 6 stitches), ssk (1 stitch from each side of
the gap), k1 (Figure 3).
Row 4: ( WS) Sl 1 purlwise wyf, purl to 1
stitch before the gap formed on the previous
row (in our example, we’ ll purl 7 stitches),
p2tog (1 stitch from each side of the gap), p1
(Figure 4, page 84).
Rows 5–8: Repeat Rows 3 and 4 two more
times—12 heel stitches will remain on the
needle (Figure 5).

stitches in our case).
Step 3: With another new needle (Needle 3),
pick up and knit 1 stitch in each chain stitch
along the other selvedge edge of the heel flap.
In our case, this will be 10 stitches (Figure 11).
With the same needle, knit the first 6 heel
stitches from Needle 1 again (Figure 12). There
will be 52 stitches total—16 stitches on Needle
1 (6 heel stitches plus 10 picked-up gusset
Figure 4
Figure 5
stitches), 20 instep stitches on Needle 2, and
16 stitches on Needle 3 (10 picked-up gusset
stitches plus 6 heel stitches).
We are now ready to work in rounds; the
round now begins at the center of the heel
stitches.
Decrease Gusset Stitches
It’s now time to shape the gussets. We will
Gussets
The next step is to connect the heel with
the instep so that you can work the foot in
rounds to the tip of the toe. To form the gus-
sets, you’ll create new stitches along the sides
of the heel flap that will connect the newly
turned heel stitches with the waiting instep
stitches. This is called “pick up and knit.”
Pick Up and Knit Gusset Stitches
Working from right to left, insert a needle
tip under the edge stitch, wrap the yarn around
the needle, then pull the needle (and wrapped
loop) through to the right side (see box at
right). Because you slipped the first stitch of
every row while working the heel flap, the edge
stitches are large and easy to recognize.
Step 1: With the right side facing and working
with the needle holding the heel stitches (Nee-
dle 1), pick up and knit the closest chain stitch
along the selvedge edge of the heel flap (Figures
6 and 7). Then pick up 1 stitch in each of the
following chain stitches to the end of the heel
flap (Figures 8 and 9). In our case, all 10 gusset
stitches have been picked up with Needle 1.
Step 2: With a new needle (Needle 2), knit
across all of the instep stitches (Figure 10; 20
Pick Up a Single Loop
For very little bulk along the pick-up edge, pick up gusset stitches through the
front half of the edge stitches. Insert the knitting needle under the front half
of the selvedge stitch (Figure 1), wrap the yarn around the needle as if to knit
(Figure 2), and bring the wrap through to create a new stitch on the needle.
Repeat this for every chain edge stitch (Figure 3).

Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until 10 stitches remain
each on Needle 1 and Needle 3. Because you
didn’t decrease any instep stitches, there are
still 20 stitches on Needle 2; 40 stitches total.
The gusset decreases will form pronounced
decrease 1 gusset stitch on each side of the in-
step stitches every other row until we’re back
to our original number of stitches—40.
Round 1: On Needle 1, knit to the last 3 stitches
(Figure 13), knit the next 2 stitches together
(k2tog; Figure 14), then knit the last stitch on
Needle 1 (Figure 15). Knit across all the instep
stitches on Needle 2 (Figure 16). On Needle 3,
knit 1 stitch (Figure 17), slip the next 2 stitches
individually knitwise, then knit them together
through their back loops (ssk; see Glossary;
Figure 18), then knit to the end of Needle 3
(Figure 19). This brings us to the end of the
round. We’ve decreased 1 stitch each on Needle
1 and Needle 3, so 15 stitches remain on each
heel needle; 50 stitches total.
Round 2: Knit all stitches on all needles.

Foot
Now it’s just a matter of knitting around
and around until the foot is the desired length
to the beginning of the toe shaping. In our
case, we’ ll knit until the piece measures 7½"
from the back of the heel, ending the round at
the center of the bottom of the foot.
Toe
There are many ways to shape the toe of a
sock. The toe we’ll work here is called a wedge
toe. That’s because it forms a wedge shape,
with the decreases all worked along the sides
of the foot.

(Figure 21), knit 2 stitches together (Figure 22),

then knit the last stitch of the needle (Figure
23)—there are now 9 stitches on Needle 1. On
Needle 2, knit the first stitch (Figure 24), ssk
(Figure 25), knit to the last 3 stitches (Figure
26), k2tog (Figure 27), knit the last stitch of
the needle (Figure 28)—there are now 18
stitches on Needle 2. On Needle 3, knit the
first stitch (Figure 29), ssk (Figure 30), knit to
the end of the needle (Figure 31).
Row 2: Knit al l the stitches on al l of the
needles.
Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until half of the
original number of stitches remain. In our
case that will be 20 stitches—5 stitches each
on Needle 1 and Needle 3; 10 stitches on
Needle 2. Then repeat Row 1 only (decrease
every round) until 8 stitches remain. There
will be 2 stitches each on Needle 1 and Needle
3 and 4 stitches on Needle 2.
You’re nearly done! All that’s left is to close
off the tip of the toe with the Kitchener stitch
(see Glossary).
When you finish the Kitchener stitch, in-
sert the needle into the inside of the sock and
weave in the tail on the wrong side.
Finishing
Weave in loose ends. The loose ends are
the tails of yarn left hanging at the beginning
of the cuff, tip of the toe, and possibly else-
where along the leg, heel, and foot when you
had to join a new ball of yarn. Thread the end
on a tapestry needle and work it into the
wrong side of the sock.

Close Holes at the Gussets
I’d lie if I said that my socks never had holes
or gaps at the beginning of the gusset. Over
time I’ve learned ways to minimize these, but
when they do show up, I simply turn the sock
inside out and use a piece of yarn to tidy up the
offending area. I pull on the enlarged stitch (or
stitches) to bring the extra yarn to the inside
of the sock (Figure 32), then use a separate
length of yarn threaded on a tapestry needle
to secure it in place (Figure 33), striving not to
distort the stitches on the right side of the
sock.
Blocking
Blocking is the final step. Adding moisture
to the knitting will even out the lines of stitches
and the fibers in the yarn.
Damp Method: My favorite method is to lay
the socks on a towel on a flat surface, spray
them with water, pat them into shape, and leave
them to air-dry.

How Much Yarn Will You Need?
The amount of yarn you need depends on the gauge and sock size. In general, the finer the yarn and the
bigger the sock, the more yarn you’ll need. If you plan to add a heavily textured pattern such as cables, you’ll
also need more yarn.

YARNOVER BACKWARD
Usually, yarnovers on the purl side are worked by bringing the yarn from the
front over the top of the needle to the back, then under the needle to front again
(Figure 1). In working a short-row heel, yarnovers are worked in the opposite
direction (referred to as yo backward). Bring yarn under needle to back, then over
needle to front again, and continue purling row (Figure 2).
SSSP DECREASE
Slip three stitches knitwise, one
at a time, and purl them together
through their back loops—two stitches
decreased.

NOTES

Rounds begin at the inside of the foot,
hence, the instep stitches are worked first
for the right sock and the sole stitches
are worked first for the left sock to place
“seam” (color changes) at inside leg, where
they are least noticeable.

At color changes, always bring the new
yarn under the old to prevent holes.

SSP DECREASE
Holding yarn in front, slip two stitches knitwise one at a time onto right needle
(Figure 1). Slip them back onto left needle and purl the two stitches together
through back loops (Figure 2).
SHORT-ROW TOE AND HEEL CONSTRUCTION
The toe and heel are constructed with short-rows that produce an hourglass
shape. Each short-row begins with a yarnover that is instrumental in prevent-
ing gaps. When the knit side is facing, work the yarnover in the usual manner,
bringing yarn forward under needle then over the top to the back. When the
purl side is facing, bring yarn to the back under needle, then over the top to the
front as illustrated here. This forms a backward yarnover—the leading side of
the loop is on the back of the needle.
Figure 2 Figure 1
tain stripe pattern as you work yarnovers
and decreases at each edge.

Round begins at bottom of foot. To reduce
the jog at the end of the round, take yarn
being dropped over and under the new
color, drawing the old color up and the
new color down with a sharp tug before
working ends in.

Te center bottom stitch, which marks the
beginning of rounds, is worked out of pat-
tern to disguise the jog where chart-ends
meet.

To make a longer sock, choose a band from
the Leg chart and work this band also on
foot. For greater foot circumference, work
on larger needles but be sure to check
gauge beforehand, to ensure a fitting sock.

The Grand Plan Mitten Chart
Here is a chart for knitting mittens in six
different sizes, child to adult, and four different
gauges. Tese mittens don’t have annoying little
holes between the thumb and the rest of the
fingers (a problem with a lot of handknitted
mittens) because balanced make-one increases
are worked on either side of the thumb gore.
Finished Size 5½ (6¼, 7, 7¾, 8½, 9½)" hand
circumference. To fit 2 yr (4 yr, 8 yr, 12 yr,
woman’s, man’s) hand.
Yarn Brown Sheep Handpaint Originals
(70% mohair, 30% wool; 88 yd [80 m]/50 g),
Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky (85% wool,
15% mohair; 125 yd [114 m]/100 g), Brown
Sheep Nature Spun Worsted (100% wool;
245 yd [224 m]/100 g), Brown Sheep Top of
the Lamb Sport (100% wool; 154 yd
[141 m]/50 g), Brown Sheep Nature Spun
Fingering (100% wool; 310 yd [283 m]/50 g).
Fifty grams of yarn is suffi cient to make a
pair of mittens in any of the first four sizes;
100 grams are needed for the largest two
sizes.
Needles Bulky—size 9 (5.5 mm); worsted—
size 7 (4.5 mm); sport—size 5 (3.75 mm);
fingering—size 3 (3.25 mm): set of 4 double-
pointed (dpn). Adjust needle sizes if neces-
sary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions Marker (m); tapestry needle.
All mittens above shown in Brown Sheep
yarn. Left to right: Lamb’s Pride Bulky at 5
sts/inch. Handpaint Originals at 4 sts/inch,
Top of the Lamb Sport at 6 sts/inch, Nature
Spun Worsted at 5 sts/inch, Handpaint

Just in time to knit a slew of mit-
tens for the December gift-giving
season (a grand plan that some-
times fails) and to actually finish
them (a happy success!).
A N N B U D D
To use this chart
Follow the numbers that match your gauge (in
parentheses at left edge of chart) and size. For
extra-thick mittens, work bulky yarn at 4–5 stitches
to the inch, worsted yarn at 6, or sport yarn at 7,
adjusting needle size accordingly.

FINISHING
Weave in loose ends. Block lightly if desired as
foll: Generously spritz inside and outside of
lace portion with a fine mist. Lay cuff on iron-
ing board or padded surface with scalloped
edges of both layers aligned. Pin CO edge to
about 7" wide, then pin out each scallop point,
pulling gently downward to extend points and
to expand and even out the lace patt. When
scallop points have been pinned, coax the
valley between pairs of points upward toward
the ribbing to exaggerate zigzag lower edge,
and pin valleys in place. Allow upper section
of lace cuff to narrow gradually to width of
ribbing. Allow to air-dry completely before
removing pins.

form the rosette, simply pinch the inner cor-
ner between thumb and forefinger and rotate
the work until you get the desired results. You
can make it as tight or open as you like. To
secure the rosette, thread the CO tail through
a tapestry needle and pass the needle through
all layers of the rosette, then secure it to the
top of your mitt. Don’t tug the tail too tight.
For extra detail, string a bead through the CO
tail before securing it into the rosette. Be sure
to choose a bead with a large enough hole to
accommodate the yarn. Weave in ends.

Cables are made by changing the order of stitches on your needle
to create a twisted, ropelike appearance. In other words, this
means working a group of stitches in a given row out of sequence.
To do this, you’ll need a cable needle as a temporary stitch holder.
A cable needle is a short double-pointed needle that can be shaped
straight, straight with a dip in it, or like a U. Te style of cable
needle to use is a matter of personal preference.
So here’s how you work a cable; the example is a six-stitch cable.
Typically, an even-numbered group of knit stitches is set off by one
or more purl stitches on either side.
Step 1: The pattern will tell you how many stitches the cable has,
the rows over which the cable is worked, and how often the cable
is repeated. When you get to the cable row, work the stitch pattern
until you get to the six cable stitches.
Step 2: Slip three stitches from the left needle onto the cable
needle and hold these stitches in front or in back (Figure 1). Te
pattern will tell you whether you hold the stitches to the front or
the back (the front or back placement determines the direction the
cable will twist).
Step 3: Knit the next three stitches from the left needle to the
right needle (Figure 2).
Step 4: Then, working from your cable needle, knit the three
stitches, in order, onto your right needle (Figure 3). Continue to
work across the row following your pattern.
Step 5: On rows between cable twists, work stitches as they
appear (knit the knits and purl the purls) unless the pattern tells
you otherwise. It will also indicate the number of rows over which
the cable is worked. Fewer rows between twists create a more pro-
nounced cable; more rows create a more relaxed cable (Figure 4).

ABBREVIATIONS Knitting Gauge
To check gauge, cast on thirty to forty stitches
using recommended needle size. Work in pat-
tern stitch until piece measures at least 4" (10
cm) from cast-on edge. Remove swatch from
needles or bind off loosely and lay swatch on
flat surface. Place a ruler over swatch and
count number of stitches across and number
of rows down (including fractions of stitches
and rows) in 4" (10 cm). Repeat two or three
times on different areas of swatch to confirm
measurements. If you have more stitches
and rows than called for in instructions, use
larger needles; if you have fewer, use smaller
needles. Repeat until gauge is correct.
Reading Charts
Unless otherwise indicated, read charts
from the bottom up. On right-side rows,
read charts from right to left. On wrong-side
rows, read charts from left to right. When
knitting in the round, read charts from right
to left for all rounds.
Use a Ruler to Measure Gauge
Tis illustration shows a gauge of 6 stitches to
the inch. For the most accurate results, mea-
sure the gauge over 4" and divide by four to
get the number of stitches per inch.
*Loop working yarn and place it on needle backward so that it
doesn’t unwind. Repeat from *.
Backward-Loop Cast-On
Figure 1
Figure 2
Figure 3
Knit into a stitch and leave it on the needle (Figure 1). Knit through the back loop of the same
stitch (Figure 2). Slip both stitches off the needle (Figure 3).
Bar Increase (K1f&b)
Leaving a long tail (about ½" to 1" for each stitch to be cast
on), make a slipknot and place on right needle. Place thumb
and index finger of left hand between yarn ends so that work-
ing yarn is around index finger and tail end is around thumb.
Secure ends with your other fingers and hold palm upward,
making a V of yarn (Figure 1). Bring needle up through loop
on thumb (Figure 2), grab first strand around index finger
with needle, and go back down through loop on thumb (Fig-
ure 3). Drop loop off thumb and, placing thumb back in V
configuration, tighten resulting stitch on needle (Figure 4).

Mattress Stitch Seam
With RS of knitting facing, use threaded needle to pick up one bar
between first two stitches on one piece (Figure 1), then correspond-
ing bar plus the bar above it on other piece (Figure 2). *Pick up next
two bars on first piece, then next two bars on other (Figure 3). Repeat
from * to end of seam, finishing by picking up last bar (or pair of
bars) at the top of first piece.
Figure 3 Figure 1 Figure 2
Double-Start Cast-On
For a double cast-on, take two ends of yarn, either from two separate
balls of yarn or one end from the outside and one from the inside of
a single ball, and cast on holding both yarns together. When you’ve
cast on the desired number of stitches, break off one end of yarn,
leaving a tail for weaving in later, and continue knitting as usual with
the other end. Tis cast-on is a variation of the continental (long-tail)
cast-on. It makes a decorative edge that results in a thread running
in front of two cast-on stitches. Make a slipknot and place it on the
needle, leaving a long tail; the slipknot counts as the first “regular”
cast-on stitch. Place the thumb and index finger of left hand between
the yarn ends. Secure with your other fingers, and hold palm upward,
making a V of yarn (Figure 1). *Release the yarn from around your
thumb and rewrap it in the opposite direction, so the yarn coming
from the needle is in front of the thumb. Insert needle tip down into
the reversed thumb loop, then over the strand around the index fin-
ger, and back up through the reversed thumb loop (Figure 2). Drop
loop off thumb, place thumb back in original V configuration, and
tighten stitch on needle. Cast on one stitch using the conventional
long-tail cast-on method, without reversing the thumb loop. Repeat
from *, alternating one reversed thumb loop stitch with one regular
long-tail cast-on stitch until you have the required number of stitches
on the needle (Figure 3).
Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3
Step 1: Bring threaded needle through
front stitch as if to purl and leave
stitch on needle.
Step 2: Bring threaded needle through
back stitch as if to knit and leave stitch
on needle.
Step 3: Bring threaded needle through
first front stitch as if to knit and slip this stitch off needle. Bring
threaded needle through next front stitch as if to purl and leave
stitch on needle.
Step 4: Bring threaded needle through first back stitch as if to purl
(as illustrated), slip this stitch off, bring needle through next back
stitch as if to knit, leave this stitch on needle.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 until no stitches remain on needles.
Kitchener Stitch
I-Cord
With double-pointed needle, cast on desired
number of stitches. *Without turning the needle,
slide the stitches to other end of the needle, pull
the yarn around the back, and knit the stitches
as usual; repeat from * for desired length.
Raised (M1) Increases
With left needle tip, lift
strand between needles from
back to front (Figure 1). Knit
lifted loop through the front
(Figure 2).

Running Stitch
Working small straight stitches, pass the threaded
needle over one knitted stitch and under the next
to form a dashed line. Te stitches can be worked in
equal or varying lengths, horizontally, vertically, or
diagonally.
Invisible (Provisional) Cast-On
Place a loose slipknot on needle held in
your right hand. Hold waste yarn next
to slipknot and around left thumb; hold
working yarn over left index finger. *Bring
needle forward under waste yarn, over
working yarn, grab a loop of working yarn
(Figure 1), then bring needle to the front,
over both yarns, and grab a second loop
(Figure 2). Repeat from *. When you’re
ready to work in the opposite direction,
pick out waste yarn to expose live stitches.

Sssk Double Decrease
Slip three stitches knitwise one at a time. Insert point of left needle
into front of three slipped stitches and knit them together through
back loops with right needle—three stitches reduced to one.
Work to turn point, slip next stitch purlwise
to right needle. Bring yarn to front (Figure 1).
Slip same stitch back to left needle (Figure 2).
Turn work and bring yarn in position for next
stitch, wrapping the stitch as you do so. Note:
Hide wraps in a knit stitch when right side of
piece is worked in a knit stitch. Leave wrap if
the purl stitch shows on right side. Hide wraps
as follows: Knit stitch: On right side, work to
just before wrapped stitch. Insert right needle
from front, under the wrap from bottom up,
and then into wrapped stitch as usual. Knit
them together, making sure new stitch comes out under wrap. Purl
stitch: On wrong side, work to just before wrapped stitch. Insert
right needle from back, under wrap from bottom up, and put on left
needle. Purl them together.

10202009131942
I went to a business seminar recently and brought along
my knitting. When the speaker began, I got to work. Te
harder I listened, absorbing new ideas, the faster my hands
worked on my sock.
That afternoon, with my finished sock nestled in my new knitting
bag and my hands—without knitting to keep them busy—restlessly
doodling, the speaker made a remark that made my head snap up.
She was speaking about a woman who had been on her board of
directors. “She never listened,” said our speaker. “She came to board
meetings with her knitting and knitted the whole meeting long.” My
cheeks burned. I felt thankful that my socks were safely tucked away.
Later, I apologized to the speaker for seeming rude.
“Oh, don’t worry about it,” she said. “You didn’t knit for that long.”
“That’s not the point,” I said. I tried to explain that my brain works
better when my hands are busy, but she had gone on to someone else.
She didn’t understand. But then again, I thought, a few years ago I
myself wouldn’t have understood. Though I’ve always kept my hands
busy while my brain works—mostly doodling—I never thought about
the brain-hand connection until I started knitting.
I haven’t been knitting long. My first project, done just over two
years ago, was a pair of midnight blue chenille mittens. I was so ob-
sessed that I worked on them in the car at stoplights. Never mind that
somehow I increased the number of stitches so that when the mittens
were finished I had to keep my hands fisted to keep the mittens from
falling off. Never mind that cotton chenille isn’t very warm and my
hands froze. It didn’t matter—they were beautiful.
My next projects were hats—many, many hats. I wrote stories in
my head while I knitted—around and around until I had enough hats
to keep the heads of all my family members warm. My father-in-law, a
gruff old softie who’d give me the moon if he could, cried when I gave
him his hat—as though I’d given the stars in return.
Then I tried a sweater, made from rug cotton on size eleven nee-
dles. The bulky yarn reminded me of fall, and I thought of breezy days
in college, remembered a friend I hadn’t thought of in years, composed
a letter I’d write down later. The sweater looks, perhaps predictably,
like a bathmat. I’ve never worn it but can’t throw it away. I’m hoping
I’ll get a puppy soon: the sweater would make a perfect dog bed.
After that I bought a silk/cashmere blend in soft pink and knitted
myself a shawl. It took months to finish, and as I worked I thought of
the type of person I’d be when I wore it: tall and willowy, confident
and feminine. I felt a keen sense of loss when I finally finished. Now
what would I knit?
Knitting Gives Me
More Than Socks
J E N N I F E R N A S T U
ravel i ngs
144 Accessories 2009 • INTERWEAVE KNITS • interweaveknits.com
Four black hats (escapist knitting); a cotton vest in shades of pink
and baby blue (reluctant knitting: “I’ll never finish this, and I’m not
sure I want to”); dozens of Christmas presents (panic knitting: “If I
make something for Mom then I have to make something for Dad and
it’s Christmas Eve”); a Fair Isle sweater (challenging knitting: “Will I
ever get the hang of this?”); staff projects for the magazine (deadline
knitting). Some projects haven’t worked out; they sit tangled and sad
in the bottom of my knitting basket. These are difficult to bear, and I
cringe when I come upon them, feeling like a neglectful mother.
And then there are dry spells, and they are each different, as well.
There’s the “I don’t have any ideas” spell, the “I don’t have any good
yarn” spell (despite the overflowing state of my yarn cabinet) and, of
course, the “there are too many things to knit in the world and I can’t
knit all of them so I won’t knit anything” spell. This last is the most
painful: I am like a sullen teenager again, refusing the beauties of
the world if I can’t have them all. It’s the one that causes my heart to
race and my hands to sweat whenever I see something being knitted.
I want to run to the yarn store and spend enough money to give my
household a heart attack, yet I hold myself back, pretending to be
aloof. When this happens, I ease back into knitting with a simple
hat, which always gets my mind on track again, percolating happily
as my hands keep busy.
Even my unfinished projects have given me something: peace of
mind, new ideas, dreams. In the two years since I started, my knitting
has come to fill a space in my life. As simple as curling up with a good
book, knitting is just something I do. Yet when I knit for my family,
they react as though I’ve done something unreal and incredible, like
learning to fly. Some, like the woman at the seminar, dismiss my
knitting as something I do to distract myself, while still others—even
good friends—just think it’s bizarre.
I know better. It’s not mindless, not a distraction. In fact it’s just
the opposite: an attraction, one between my hands and my brain. I
make no brilliant leaps when I’m knitting. I haven’t solved the problem

wonder and daydream. I have ideas. I create.

weave. She wholeheartedly blames them for the current state of her
addiction.

but be careful not to flatten any textured stitches. BLOCKING TIPS • Experiment with blocking your gauge swatch before you block an actual knitted piece. weave in all loose ends—the blocking process will help secure the ends in place. Shape the piece right side up on a padded surface. • It is preferable to block individual pieces before sewing them together. Wet-Wrapping Wet-wrapping imparts moisture deeper into the fibers and is appropriate for all types of yarn. and pin it out to measurements on a padded surface away from direct sun or heat. • Before blocking. To immerse a handknit. carry the wet handknit in a bundle to the washing machine. or wring a handknit. using pins (and blocking wires) as necessary. ribbing can be successfully blocked if you squeeze it into its most contracted state (so that all the purl stitches recede behind the knit stitches) before you apply moisture. and any extra inches you gain in width. and finished texture because you are not restricted to the temperature and amount of steam that comes out of your iron. However. It works equally well for all fibers—although silks and synthetics require more wetness than wool—and it allows for total control over temperature. which are less resilient than wool and require more moisture penetration to reshape stitches. remove the handknit. There are three degrees of wet-blocking. Drain the water. It is also the method to use after washing a handknit. thoroughly soak a large bath towel in water. even mist over the piece. It is appropriate for all fiber types and particularly ideal for heavily ribbed or cabled fabrics or fabrics that have taken on a biased slant during knitting. if desired. Do not twist or wring the handknit. which will lose its natural elasticity if blocked while stretched open. you may lose in length). To wet-wrap. overnight if necessary. depending on the amount of moisture added to the knitted fabric. and put it through the spin cycle (or roll it in dry towels) to remove excess moisture. then roll the two together jelly-roll fashion. Fill a spray bottle with cool tap water and spritz a fine. then put it through the spin cycle of a washing machine to remove excess moisture. Immersion Immersion imparts moisture thoroughly through the fibers and allows complete reshaping. Accessories 2009 • INTERWEAVE KNITS 49 . Pin the handknit to shape right side up on a padded surface placed away from direct sun or heat. Use your hands to gently pat the moisture into the handknit. Let the bundle sit until the handknit is completely damp. but the results may not be as good. gently squeezing water through the piece if necessary. • Many experts warn against blocking ribbing. Place the handknit on top of the towel. Unroll the towel. turn it inside out and soak it in a basin of lukewarm water for about twenty minutes or until thoroughly wet. especially cotton and acrylic. and you can gently pat and shape the piece with your hands while you work. Doing so may distort the stitches beyond correction. and the results of blocking are more consistent when you work with a single layer of fabric. twist. Blocking makes the sewing process easier.Blocking Wet-Blocking By definition wet-blocking uses more moisture than steam-blocking and can be used to stretch and enlarge a knitted piece (although loosely knitted pieces stretch more easily than tightly knitted ones. You can block a garment that has been sewed together. dampness. • Allow the blocked handknit to airdry completely before moving it. Spray-Blocking Spray-blocking is the mildest form of wet-blocking. • Do not rub.

The first and last stitches have exchanged places and the last stitch cast on surrounds the first. making it longer than the edges. beginning with the first cast-on stitch. so we’ll knit across 12 of them).

Row 2: (WS) Sl 1 purlwise wyf. remember that the joining stitches were worked with a double strand of yarn and be sure to work the two strands together as though they were a single stitch.

This causes the center area to have more rows of knitting. p2tog. Heel Turn You’re now ready to work the magical part of a sock—the heel turn. knit to 1 stitch before the gap formed on the previous row (in our example. no matter what size sock you’re knitting. Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3 Figure 2 Two-End Join Figure 3 Work the first two or three stitches of the round with both ends of yarn (the one attached to the ball and the tail end) that were used for the cast-on.

Crossover Join Figure 1 Step 1: Slip the first cast-on stitch (it will be on the left needle tip) onto the right needle (Figure 1). we have 20 heel stitches. After you have worked several stitches. but this can be effectively tidied up when the cast-on tail is woven in later.

We are now ready to work in rounds. you’ll create new stitches along the sides of the heel flap that will connect the newly turned heel stitches with the waiting instep stitches. then pull the needle (and wrapped loop) through to the right side (see box at right). 20 Pick Up a Single Loop For very little bulk along the pick-up edge. In our case. Step 1: With the right side facing and working with the needle holding the heel stitches (Needle 1).Figure 4 Figure 6 Figure 8 Figure 5 Figure 7 Figure 9 Gussets The next step is to connect the heel with the instep so that you can work the foot in rounds to the tip of the toe. and bring the wrap through to create a new stitch on the needle. There will be 52 stitches total—16 stitches on Needle 1 (6 heel stitches plus 10 picked-up gusset stitches). Repeat this for every chain edge stitch (Figure 3). 20 instep stitches on Needle 2. knit the first 6 heel stitches from Needle 1 again (Figure 12). We will Working from right to left. this will be 10 stitches (Figure 11). This is called “pick up and knit. Step 2: With a new needle (Needle 2). and 16 stitches on Needle 3 (10 picked-up gusset stitches plus 6 heel stitches). insert a needle tip under the edge stitch. Insert the knitting needle under the front half of the selvedge stitch (Figure 1). knit across all of the instep stitches (Figure 10.” Pick Up and Knit Gusset Stitches stitches in our case). wrap the yarn around the needle as if to knit (Figure 2). Figure A Figure B Figure C 84 Accessories 2009 • INTERWEAVE KNITS • interweaveknits. the edge stitches are large and easy to recognize. With the same needle. pick up and knit 1 stitch in each chain stitch along the other selvedge edge of the heel flap. the round now begins at the center of the heel stitches. Decrease Gusset Stitches It’s now time to shape the gussets. To form the gussets. wrap the yarn around the needle. pick up gusset stitches through the front half of the edge stitches. pick up and knit the closest chain stitch along the selvedge edge of the heel flap (Figures 6 and 7). Step 3: With another new needle (Needle 3). all 10 gusset stitches have been picked up with Needle 1. In our case.com . Then pick up 1 stitch in each of the following chain stitches to the end of the heel flap (Figures 8 and 9). Because you slipped the fi rst stitch of every row while working the heel flap.

decrease 1 gusset stitch on each side of the instep stitches every other row until we’re back to our original number of stitches—40. Round 1: On Needle 1, knit to the last 3 stitches (Figure 13), knit the next 2 stitches together (k2tog; Figure 14), then knit the last stitch on Needle 1 (Figure 15). Knit across all the instep stitches on Needle 2 (Figure 16). On Needle 3, knit 1 stitch (Figure 17), slip the next 2 stitches individually knitwise, then knit them together through their back loops (ssk; see Glossary; Figure 18), then knit to the end of Needle 3 (Figure 19). This brings us to the end of the round. We’ve decreased 1 stitch each on Needle 1 and Needle 3, so 15 stitches remain on each heel needle; 50 stitches total. Round 2: Knit all stitches on all needles.

Figure 16

Figure 20

Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until 10 stitches remain each on Needle 1 and Needle 3. Because you didn’t decrease any instep stitches, there are still 20 stitches on Needle 2; 40 stitches total. The gusset decreases will form pronounced

diagonal stitch lines between the beginning of the heel flap and the foot. When all gusset stitches have been decreased, there will be the same number of stitches as were cast on to begin the leg (Figure 20).

Foot

Now it’s just a matter of knitting around and around until the foot is the desired length to the beginning of the toe shaping. In our case, we’ll knit until the piece measures 7½" from the back of the heel, ending the round at the center of the bottom of the foot.
Toe

There are many ways to shape the toe of a sock. The toe we’ll work here is called a wedge toe. That’s because it forms a wedge shape, with the decreases all worked along the sides of the foot. Round 1: On Needle 1, knit to the last 3 stitches (Figure 21), knit 2 stitches together (Figure 22),

then knit the last stitch of the needle (Figure 23)—there are now 9 stitches on Needle 1. On Needle 2, knit the fi rst stitch (Figure 24), ssk (Figure 25), knit to the last 3 stitches (Figure 26), k2tog (Figure 27), knit the last stitch of the needle ( Figure 28 )—there are now 18 stitches on Needle 2. On Needle 3, knit the first stitch (Figure 29), ssk (Figure 30), knit to the end of the needle (Figure 31). Row 2: Knit all the stitches on all of the needles. Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until half of the original number of stitches remain. In our case that will be 20 stitches—5 stitches each on Needle 1 and Needle 3; 10 stitches on Needle 2. Then repeat Row 1 only (decrease every round) until 8 stitches remain. There

will be 2 stitches each on Needle 1 and Needle 3 and 4 stitches on Needle 2. You’re nearly done! All that’s left is to close off the tip of the toe with the Kitchener stitch (see Glossary). When you fi nish the Kitchener stitch, insert the needle into the inside of the sock and weave in the tail on the wrong side.
Finishing

Weave in loose ends. The loose ends are the tails of yarn left hanging at the beginning of the cuff, tip of the toe, and possibly elsewhere along the leg, heel, and foot when you had to join a new ball of yarn. Thread the end on a tapestry needle and work it into the wrong side of the sock.

Close Holes at the Gussets

Figure 30

I’d lie if I said that my socks never had holes or gaps at the beginning of the gusset. Over time I’ve learned ways to minimize these, but when they do show up, I simply turn the sock inside out and use a piece of yarn to tidy up the offending area. I pull on the enlarged stitch (or stitches) to bring the extra yarn to the inside of the sock (Figure 32), then use a separate length of yarn threaded on a tapestry needle to secure it in place (Figure 33), striving not to distort the stitches on the right side of the sock.
Blocking

Figure 32

Blocking is the final step. Adding moisture to the knitting will even out the lines of stitches and the fibers in the yarn. Damp Method: My favorite method is to lay the socks on a towel on a flat surface, spray them with water, pat them into shape, and leave them to air-dry.

How Much Yarn Will You Need?
The amount of yarn you need depends on the gauge and sock size. In general, the finer the yarn and the bigger the sock, the more yarn you’ll need. If you plan to add a heavily textured pattern such as cables, you’ll also need more yarn.

like a bathmat. My first project.ravelings Knitting Gives Me More Than Socks JENNIFER NASTU I went to a business seminar recently and brought along my knitting. confident and feminine. Instead I wonder and daydream. This last is the most painful: I am like a sullen teenager again. the faster my hands worked on my sock. new ideas. In the two years since I started. Even my unfinished projects have given me something: peace of mind. I haven’t been knitting long. they react as though I’ve done something unreal and incredible. I was so obsessed that I worked on them in the car at stoplights. The harder I listened. My father-in-law. I felt thankful that my socks were safely tucked away.com Four black hats (escapist knitting). As simple as curling up with a good book. Some. “You didn’t knit for that long. many hats. She didn’t understand. a few years ago I myself wouldn’t have understood. and I thought of breezy days in college. of course. I have ideas.” I said. My next projects were hats—many. cried when I gave him his hat—as though I’d given the stars in return. And then there are dry spells. .” said our speaker. Later. I haven’t solved the problem of world hunger or cured cancer or balanced my finances.” “That’s not the point. as well. knitting is just something I do. I want to run to the yarn store and spend enough money to give my household a heart attack. don’t worry about it. composed a letter I’d write down later. Now what would I knit? 144 Accessories 2009 • INTERWEAVE KNITS • interweaveknits.” My cheeks burned. a Fair Isle sweater (challenging knitting: “Will I ever get the hang of this?”). Jennifer Nastu learned to knit thanks to her friends here at Interweave. but she had gone on to someone else. I know better. I wrote stories in my head while I knitted—around and around until I had enough hats to keep the heads of all my family members warm. with my finished sock nestled in my new knitting bag and my hands—without knitting to keep them busy—restlessly doodling. “Oh. staff projects for the magazine (deadline knitting). and I’m not sure I want to”). I’m hoping I’ll get a puppy soon: the sweater would make a perfect dog bed. Then I tried a sweater. dozens of Christmas presents (panic knitting: “If I make something for Mom then I have to make something for Dad and it’s Christmas Eve”). But then again. It didn’t matter—they were beautiful. which always gets my mind on track again. Never mind that cotton chenille isn’t very warm and my hands froze. I thought. That afternoon. perhaps predictably. percolating happily as my hands keep busy. She wholeheartedly blames them for the current state of her addiction. not a distraction. Though I’ve always kept my hands busy while my brain works—mostly doodling—I never thought about the brain-hand connection until I started knitting. pretending to be aloof. absorbing new ideas. The sweater looks. like the woman at the seminar. I got to work. “She never listened. refusing the beauties of the world if I can’t have them all. a cotton vest in shades of pink and baby blue (reluctant knitting: “I’ll never finish this. I’ve never worn it but can’t throw it away. It’s the one that causes my heart to race and my hands to sweat whenever I see something being knitted. remembered a friend I hadn’t thought of in years. “She came to board meetings with her knitting and knitted the whole meeting long. The bulky yarn reminded me of fall. When the speaker began. one between my hands and my brain. dreams. like learning to fly. while still others—even good friends—just think it’s bizarre. done just over two years ago. I ease back into knitting with a simple hat. When this happens.” she said. a gruff old softie who’d give me the moon if he could. I apologized to the speaker for seeming rude. These are difficult to bear. they sit tangled and sad in the bottom of my knitting basket. made from rug cotton on size eleven needles. She was speaking about a woman who had been on her board of directors. I make no brilliant leaps when I’m knitting. I tried to explain that my brain works better when my hands are busy. Never mind that somehow I increased the number of stitches so that when the mittens were finished I had to keep my hands fisted to keep the mittens from falling off. the “I don’t have any good yarn” spell (despite the overflowing state of my yarn cabinet) and. and they are each different. In fact it’s just the opposite: an attraction. dismiss my knitting as something I do to distract myself. was a pair of midnight blue chenille mittens. Yet when I knit for my family. There’s the “I don’t have any ideas” spell. the speaker made a remark that made my head snap up. Some projects haven’t worked out. It took months to finish. After that I bought a silk/cashmere blend in soft pink and knitted myself a shawl. my knitting has come to fill a space in my life. yet I hold myself back. and I cringe when I come upon them. the “there are too many things to knit in the world and I can’t knit all of them so I won’t knit anything” spell. I felt a keen sense of loss when I finally finished. feeling like a neglectful mother. and as I worked I thought of the type of person I’d be when I wore it: tall and willowy. It’s not mindless. I create.
