Alex has socks!

I started a pair of socks for Alex absolutely ages ago.

I made one sock………..and it didn’t fit!

So I started another one, slightly larger and worked the sock from the top down rather than toe up……………..that didn’t fit either!

In my despair I had a chat with Joy; the problem seemed to be Alex’s heels. The kid has major skinny legs, wide feet and almost abnormal heels, I tell ya!

So we decided I would work a top down sock with a stretchier top, garter stitch short row heel and a 2×2 rib.

Here is the pattern for anyone else with abnormal heels!

Cast on 99 stitches.

Work one round: *k3, p2, k2, p2, rep from * to end

Work next round: *k2tog, p2, k2, p2, rep from * to end. 88 sts.

Work in 2×2 rib until desired length.

Work a short row garter stitch heel.

Work foot of sock with st-st on sole and 2×2 rib on top. Work preferred toe.

Here are the socks!

Pattern: 2×2 ribbed socks
Yarn: KG Egg A La Scullybunbun Sock
Time: 15-07-09 – 2-09-09 (with other projects!)
