Knitted Sock for a Child.
Materials for 1 pair: 1 ounce of single Berlin wool; 1 yard of
narrow pink or blue ribbon; 2 fine steel pins.
This sock fits well, and is easy to make. It is knitted upon two
pins, backwards and forwards.
Cast on 22 stitches and knit 22 rows,
but increase once at the end of every other row on the right side
of the work, so that there are 33 stitches in the 22nd row. Now
cast off 28 stitches and knit 12 rows, increasing 1 stitch at the
end of every other row. Now 12 more rows, decreasing 1 stitch at
the end of every other row; this forms the toe. Cast on 28 stitches
on the same needle, and knit 22 rows, decreasing 1 stitch at the
end of every other row, and cast off. Pick up the 68 stitches on
the upper part of shoe, and knit 20 rows, alternately 2 plain and 2
purl rows, decreasing 1 stitch on each side of the 12 stitches in
every other row, which forms the toe and front of sock. Knit 14
rows of 2 plain, 2 purl stitches alternately, then 3 open rows with
1 plain row between.
The open rows are worked as follows:--*
Purl 2 together, purl 1, make 1, repeat *, 3 plain rows, 1 open
row, 1 plain row, and cast off. The sock is sewn together down the
back of leg, centre of sole, and the point joined like a gusset to
form the toe.
