Red Sox

Hooray! This is as good a time as any to show off these:

Red Sox!

Pattern: My own
Yarn: Cascade Fixation, 2 balls 3678 and 1 ball 8176
Needle: Addi Turbo 32" #4, magic loop style

The pattern:

  • Cast on 60 stitches with Red
  • Join white and work K2red, k2white for 1 round
  • Work in 2x2 corrugated rib (knit red, purl white) for 10 rounds
  • Switch to 4x2 rib in red only for leg
  • After 5", work 1/2 stitches onto smooth waste yarn to hold for heel
  • Go back to the beginning of the waste yarn stitches back onto needle and continue working in 4x2 rib for another 4.5"
  • Switch to white and alternate decrease round (K1, ssk, knit to 3 sts from end, k2tog, K1 on both sides of needle) with K round until 28 stitches remain
  • Work decrease round until 16 stitches remain
  • Kitchener live stitches
  • Return to heel and remove waste yarn, putting 30 stitches on each side of needle
  • Using white, work as for toe, only stop decreasing and Kitchener when there are 20 stitches remaining
But the important thing here is that my boys are the champs!
