FORMATION SOCKS ENGLISH
This pattern is in English
Formation Socks are knit in a stockinette on the toe, heel and underneath. The leg and top side of the sock is knit in mock honey comb stitch pattern.
The socks are worked bottom up. The cast on at the toe is made with Judy’s magic cast on, making it possible to work in the round without visible cast on. After the increases at the toe, the work is divided into an upper- and underside. Mock honey comb stitch pattern is worked at the upper side. Then, the sock is worked straight up to the heel, which is worked with decreases for gusset, short rows and decreases to make the heel flap. The leg of the sock is worked in mock honey comb stitch and finished with a twisted rib.
