125”) foot circumference 9.5” (10”/10”) foot length – US Women’s size 8.5 (9/9) Materials 2 (2, 3) skeins KnitPicks Gloss (70% Merino, 30% Silk) 220 yds./50 g. Cosmos Note: for a crew length sock you will need 3 skeins for any size. Clover C-Hook (2.5 mm) Skill level Intermediate to Experienced Approximate Time to Make: 20 hours Gauge: 6 sc x 7 rows = 1" 6 hdc x 4.5 rows = 1” A pattern repeat for 7.375” is [cable or cable twist and bpdc, fpdc, bpdc] = 1” A pattern repeat for 8.125” or 9.125” is [cable or cable twist and bpdc (fpdc, bpdc) twice] = 1.25” One full cable repeat for all sizes is (1 cable twist row and 3 cable rows) 1 full cable =7/8" / 4 full cables = 3.5" To add to or reduce the length of the foot, add or remove one full cable repeat in the foot. Notes Toe is worked in a spiral, do not join rounds. The rest of the sock is worked in individual rounds, join each round with a sl st. Ch 2 counts as 1st dc. The ribbing and cabling on the instep does provide some ease in this sock. For a more fitted sock you may want to try a sock circumference smaller than your measurement so it will stretch around your foot. Don’t forget to try these socks on as you go. You will know within the first 3 inches of the sock whether or not you like the fit of the size you chose. If you find you have a small hole where the heel joined to the instep (top of foot), use a small piece of yarn and weave the hole closed, then weave in the ends.
