Rococo Sock pattern, by Anne Hanson of Knitspot.
Socks are knit toe-up with a short-row toe and heel. Instructions are written for knitting with DPNs, but are adaptable for using with circular needles.
Knit at the stated gauge, this pattern produces a sock which measures approximately 7.5 to 8? around and fits foot sizes up to 9?. A wider sock may be obtained by using slightly heavier yarn and larger needles to obtain a stitch gauge which has less stitches per inch.
Suggested Yarn: 350 yds of fine fingering weight which has approx. 500 yds per 4 ounces (heavier yarns will produce a larger sock width).
- cuff length from top of heel: 9"
- finished width: 8"
Needles: 2.25 mm. (US 1)
Gauge: 32 sts and 44 rows = 10 cm./4 in. in stockinette
