This is a short sock that is comfortable and light. The techniques used to construct this sock include knitting in the round on double point needles, short rows, and the Kitchener stitch.
I cannot include any information about the gauge of my knitting because I am one of those knitters that just jumps into a project head first and worry about the size about half way through. I know this can be infuriating for more methodical knitters, but I knit for the enjoyment of the process. The end result is less important to me than learning and practicing new techniques I also find the process of knitting relaxing. That being said, I follow an old pattern which after reviewing some others on the web, looks fairly standard with a few of my own modifications. The finished sock is very stretchy and forgiving so unless you have a particularly wide or narrow foot you shouldn't have any problem with size. My finished sock fits my size 9 foot a little loosely around and is snug length wise.
Step 1: Materials
4- Size 2 double point knitting needles
1- Tapestry Needle
Yarn of choice, I used Patons Stretch socks yarn which is a light weight, super fine yarn. (It came in a 50 gram ball which is enough for the pair).
My choice of yarn was one of those decisions that was made as I was purchasing yarn for another project and saw this yarn on clearance. I think everyone who knits knows what I am talking about when I say that I couldn't pass it up. It then sat in my stash for about a year before I decided to make these socks.
