Just in time to keep my feet warm
during this cool snap here in mid-MO.
If you look closely, the 'star' increase method is the one I used for co and toe increases.
I like the way it gives a more rounded toe.
The spiraling increase distribute the increase stitches equally 'round the toe.
Vesper Self-Striping yarn is great.
It's a light fingering so I used a size #1 US to obtain my usual 8sts/inch gauge.
This gives a great fabric that gives good endurance to the sox.
Since these have the Afterthought Heel the striping was maintained more or less in sequence.
The same method as the toe increases was used in the heel decreases. Again, decreases were equally distributed around the heel and using the same math the length of heel were equal to the length of the toe.
I used a Surprizingly Stretchy bind off at the cuff.
So simple to do - such a lovely way to end the sock.
This gives more than enough stretch to pass over the heel hinge area and have enough umph to keep the cuff snug around the leg.
? Does this last photo make my feet look l-o-n-g??
