Spaghetti Socks

These are a relatively quick knit. They have a four row repeat so it’s an easy pattern to memorize. I like to make my socks on two needles. I find it quicker. If you prefer the four needle method, I’ve included instructions for that method as well.

Yarn


Cowgirlknitz Hand Painted Superwash Sock Yarn

75% Merino/20% Nylon

1 skein ( with leftovers)

size 2 needles

Pattern Repeat

Row 1: Knit 4, purl 2  (repeat for round)

Row 2: Knit 2 tog, Yo twice, SSK, purl 2  (repeat for round)

Row 3: Knit 1, knit into front of first  yo, than knit into the back of the second yo, knit 1, purl 2 (repeat)

Row 4: Yo, SSk, k2 tog, yo, purl 2 (repeat)

Spaghetti Socks

Cast on 66 stitches. 30 stitches on your first needle, and 36 on your second needle. If you are using 4 needles divide your stitches as such:

1st- 15 stitches

2nd-15

3rd-18

4th-18

Rows 1-5: Knit

Row 6: knit 2 together, yo, repeat

Row 7&8- Knit

Begin pattern. You can make the leg of your sock any length you want. I made mine about 5 inches. I find that somewhere between 5 and 7 inches works the best.

Heel Flap

You will be working the circular needle that has 30 stitches on it (circular needle #1) , or the two needles containing the 15 stitches each.

row 1: Slip the first stitch, *knit 1, slip 1, (repeat from *)

row 2: Slip the first stitch, purl across

Repeat these two rows until heel flap measures about 2 inches.  Again you can adjust the length of the flap (larger or smaller depending on the recipients foot). End with row 2.

Turn Heel

Knit across 17 stitches.

Ssk, K1, turn work

Row 2: Slip 1  Pwise, purl 5,  p2tog,  p1 turn

Row 3: Slip 1 pwise, knit to 1 stitch before gap, ssk (1 stitch before the gap and the stitch after the gap), k1 turn

Row 4: Slip 1 stitch purlwise, purl to 1 stitch before gap, p2tog, (1 stitch from each side of gap) p1 turn

Continue in this manner until all stitches have been used up. You will end up on a purl row. Turn work and knit across stitches.

Heel Gusset

Knit along side of heel flap picking up 12 stitches.

Continue in your leg pattern for the circular needle #2 stitches. ( Or needles 3 &4 if using double points)

Pick up and knit 12 stitches on other side of heel flap.

Row 1: Knit across your heel stitches until 3 stitches before circular needle #2. (Double point#3)  Knit 2 tog, knit 1. Keeping in pattern, knit stitches from circular needle #2 (double points #3&4). Knit 1, ssk. Knit

Row 2: Knit around all needles 1 time.

(You will be decreasing in this manner every other round.)

Repeat  rows 1&2 until you have 30 stitches on circular needle #1 (15 stitches each on double points 1&2)

Foot

Continue knitting in stockinette stitch for circular needle # 1 (double points #1&2) and in pattern for Circular needle #2 (double points #3&4), until the length you want.  About 7-8 inches for an average size woman’s foot.

Toe

Be sure to continue in pattern on the top part of your sock.

You will be decreasing again every other round until there are 26 stitches left. Than decrease every round.

Row 1: On circular needle 1 (double point 1) knit to last 3 stitches, k2tog, knit 1.

at beginning of circular needle #2 (double point#2) knit 1 ssk ,

knit to 3 stitches before the end of circular needle #2 (double point #3)

k2tog, knit 1

At the beginning of circular needle #1 (double point #4) Knit 1, ssk

When you have a total of 26 stitches on your needles you will want to decrease every round, instead of every other.

Continue decreasing until you have 12 stitches on your needles. Graft them together and enjoy your sock!!
