Special Techniques




Instructions
    Yoga socks, free knitting pattern
  • CO60 with 4mm needles and join in round
  • change to 3mm needles (using bigger needles for CO will make the cast-on stretchier)
  • knit 34 rounds of "p1 k3 p1"-ribbing (this is basically "p2 k3"-ribbing, but by starting with p1 k3, the opening will start end end in the middle of a purl channel)
  • in 35th round: BO30 and finish round in ribbing-pattern
  • in 36th round: CO30 (knitted cast-on) and finish round in ribbing pattern
  • knit 33 more rows of "p1 k3 p1"-ribbing
  • BO using sewn bind off technique - also very stretchy

  1. Du bist ja richtig fleissig.
    Die Yogasocken sehen witzig aus.
    Wieso sind die so luftig? :)

    1. Danke. Bin derzeit auch richtig stolz auf mich :)
      Habe die Idee mit den Yoga-Socken irgendwann mal auf Ravelry gefunden und ich hatte mal geplant, in einen Yoga-Kurs zu gehen (soviel zu guten Vorsätzen) - sie sind aber recht praktisch, denn Ballen und Ferse stehen direkt auf dem Boden, also rutschfrei ... ausserdem kann ich doch keine "richtigen" Socken stricken :)
