Madeline's Socks

 Madeline's Colors

I made these socks for my sister because the yarn colors matched her eventing cross country colors. I love using Lorna's Laces for sock yarn because they come in awesome color combinations and they are washable. With these socks I knit them from the toe up until I ran out of wool, and they came out to be almost knee high.

                At the beginning of a row, using the two needles you knitted plain, Yo purl wise and purl across, turn. Row 2: Yo knit across to st before Yo (last two st), turn. Continue making pairs of 2 st until you have 9 pairs on either side.

                Knit to first pair, knit first st of pair, turn. Yo, purl across to first pair, purl first st of pair, turn. Yo, knit across to first yo, slip 3, knit the same 3 together, turn. Yo, purl across to first yo slip 3, knit same 3 together, turn. Continue decreasing in this manner until all except one st on either side are knitted.

                Use the extra st and knit it together with first st of next row to prevent a gap. Continue in pattern on first 2 needles; at the end of the second needle, decrease other extra st. Begin the pattern at the same row  on the second two needles as is on the first two needles, 8 pattern repeats around leg. Continue in pattern until almost out of yarn and finish sock by knit 2, purl 2 ribbing for 10 rows. Cast off loosely.
