Revolutionize Your Knit Socks With These Easy-peasy Tips

by admin

hey its a for yarn and today I'm going
to show you how I made socks on the ADI
with no short rows and no afterthought
heel now Im going to start by working
the heel and Im using doubled worsted
weight yarn here if you use a single
strand of worsted weight yarn then when
the socks stretch they're kind of
see-through so I'm using two strands and
I'm going to start by casting on all the
way around in a circular knitting mode
and as always I like to rotate my addi
to make it easier to crank the handle
I'm going to clear my row counter and
for the heel depending upon the size of
the foot this is an adult size sock if
you're going to be making this for
someone with a wide foot or a thick foot
you're going to need to use a loose
gauge with the thicker yarn now I'm
going to be making this for a smaller
foot so I'm only going to knit eight
rows for my heel but you could knit nine
or ten if you're making this for a
larger heel
so now I've knit my 8 rows for the heel
of the sock and I am going to cut my
yarn and bring it to the back and I'm
also going to drop that white needle so
that that last stitches worked and we're
going to close up the heel by pulling on
the cast on tail and cinching it shut
and it won't go all the way shot right
now but that will at least keep it out
of the way keep the tail out of the way
we just stick the tail right through the
hole and now we're going to work the
foot of the sock so now we're going to
start knitting the foot and I have some
doubled worsted weight yarn in a
coordinating color this is actually very
gated and I'm going to start by sliding
it under the hook of that first black
needle and sinking the needle and we're
going to knit since this has 22 stitches
around we're going to knit 11 stitches
with this yarn and then we're going to
cast off and recast on the other 11
it is very helpful that the needles are
numbered so here's one two three four
five six seven eight nine ten eleven
this is 11 right here so we're going to
take that off for just a minute
and we're going to make sure the needle
sinks and catches that yarn now I have
one piece of waste yarn on a our needle
and one piece of waste yarn off of the
yarn needle so with the one on the
needle I'm going to as we go around I'm
going to pick up the next stitch off of
the needle and at the same time we're
going to be recasting on these stitches
so I'm going to bring it back up a
little bit and I'm not going to slide my
other piece of waste yarn into the hook
of the needle but rather down around the
base around the little the two little
red prongs that stick up like that and
then I'm going to hook this working yarn
under the needle to make the stitch so
that's one stitch now usually when you
cast on you put the the waste yarn
around one needle and then behind the
next one so what we're going to do with
this stitch is we're going to pick it up
with the yarn needle and hold it on the
waste yarn then we're going to bring the
cast on waste yarn behind that needle
behind the red tabs bring the needle
back up and hook the working yarn with
it sink it down into the machine so now
this stitch is the here was the one that
we went in front off here's when we went
behind so we're going to go in front of
this one we're going to pick up that
stitch hold it on the waste yarn bring
the cast on waste yarn in front of the
needle without hooking it
bring the needle up just a little bit
catch the working yarn and sink that
stitch so what we're essentially doing
is all at the same time we are casting
off or temporarily holding half of the
stitches of the heel we are casting on
those stitches that we are eliminating
from the circle and we're also knitting
the first round at the same time because
we don't want to have to knit half
around and then have a gap between that
first half around and the second half of
the round so we're going to be knitting
them all in the same round by working it
in this manner so because my cast on
waste yarn just went in front of that
needle it's going to go behind this one
I'm going to pick up the stitch that's
already there bring that cast on waste
yarn behind the red tabs bring the
needle back up a little bit hook it with
the working yarn and sync that stitch
but I don't want to sync the stitch
after it quite yet all right so I'm
going to keep doing this until I get
back to this first black needle over
here or right here there should be 11
stitches that were knit with the working
yarn and all the other eleven should be
held and cast on and remit with the new
foot working yarn
so here's my last stitch and I'm going
to pick it up with my waste yarn I'm
actually going to take the needle off of
that waste yarn and this is the last one
it's an odd number so this one meaning
it's an odd number of stitches that we
worked with the new cast on so this one
should go in front and I'm going to drop
that down in there too and hook that
working yarn into the last needle and
now we're going to put this yarn back in
the yarn guide and you're going to knit
as many rows to equal the length of your
foot – about two inches for the heel and
about two inches for the toe so on the
sock I made earlier I worked 22 rows in
this particular yarn with the gauge that
this yarn knit it was 22 rows to equal
the length that I wanted so what we're
doing here is here's the heel here is
the foot and here's going to be the toe
so here's the stitches for the heel
we've held half of those and recast on
half of the stitches for the foot so
we're going to be knitting this piece
and then at the end we're going to come
back and pick these up and knit this way
so you may end up having to try this
more than once before you get the right
fit but once you have worked out for the
gauge of your yarn and the gauge the
tension that you're using with it then
you can pretty much get the exact same
size for the other sock
you
so I'm going to clear my rail counter
and I'm going to knit 22 rows so as I'm
going around here I want to be careful
that I don't drop any of the stitches
that we cast on so this is one row but
we already worked one round when we knit
across here and recast them on
I'm going to knit 20 more
so now that I've got 22 rows I'm going
to cut this yarn bring it behind the
white needle and sink that white needle
and now I'm going to go back to this
periwinkle blue for the toe so I'm going
to hook this new yarn under the black
needle and I'm going to knit eight rows
with this color for the toe and also if
you like you can tie these two together
in a knot to keep them secure
you
all right so there's my eight rows and
now I'm going to cut the yarn again sink
the white needle and I'm going to pick
up all these stitches all the way around
onto this yarn so now to finish up the
toe I'm going to just pull on this yarn
right here and close it up so now I'm
going to slip the needle through the
middle of that little hole and turn the
toe of that sock inside out
pull on it tighter just to close it up
as far as I can and then I'm going to
make a little knot
and just leave in my tail
and I like to weave it in around the
through of the cinched stitches that we
just closed up
so there's the toe of our sock now we're
going to close up the heel in the same
manner pull all those yarn tails out of
the way and pull on the cast on tail for
the heel to close up the hole
then I'm going to thread it through my
yarn needle right through the center of
the hole and tie a knot and weave in the
tail as I did before
so now we have our toe or foot and our
heel and we're going to pick up these
stitches back onto the ADI to knit the
leg part of the sock so now we're going
to put all these stitches back onto the
addi
and a loom pack is very helpful for this
so I'm going to start by slipping this
sock down into the center of the addi
and I'm going to begin with the heel
stitches so I'm going to pull that
stitch so that it's long enough I can
pick it up slip the waste yarn out and
slide that stitch into the first black
needle under the hook and I'm going to
just pick up all of the stitches from
the heel of the sock and hook them
underneath the first 11 needles
down to the last heel stitch
and so I'm going to start picking up the
stitches from the foot now this one
right here is a half stitch that's on my
cast on waste yarn because the stitches
are actually upside down here so I'm
going to pick it up anyway and there is
one half stitch on this side one has to
join the side so one of these has to be
eliminated because then we'll have 12
stitches instead of 11 so what I'm going
to do is we're going to add this one
onto the needle and the next one onto
the same needle
and at this point this is a good time to
tie together your tail from the heel and
your tail from the foot
so I'm also going to pick up all the
stitches from the foot of the sock and
put them on the needles
now as you can see here we have this
half stitch from the side because the
stitches are upside down and I'm going
to put that one on the needle by itself
as its own stitch because the other one
on this side we combined with the stitch
after it so that we have 11 stitches and
not 12 so now that we have all our
stitches picked up we can start knitting
the leg of our sock so now I'm going to
go ahead and start with on the first
black needle my regular yarn that I was
using for most of the sock and as you'll
notice there is a gap here there's a
hole so we're going to close up that
hole before we start knitting by picking
up as you can see there this is the heel
we're going to pick up part of one of
the stitches from further from the next
stitch over it's actually the stitch
that's knit into already from over here
and that is going to help us close up
the hole and we're also going to close
up the other side of the hole once we
get around and you also need to make
sure that this last stitch right here
gets hooked and doesn't just sit down
here because otherwise needle will drop
and then when the needle comes back up
to knit it'll just push the stitch right
off
you may have a little bit of trouble
with this first stitch because it has
two stitches on it there we go
and the leg of my first sock has 19 row
so I'm going to work total of 19 rows
and as we get a loan to this side there
we have our knot right there we're also
going to try to close up this gap as
long as the knot is not too tight we're
going to grab this stitch right here and
put it over this needle and this has to
be done very carefully if you do it
forcefully then you could break a needle
so yes you do have to kind of stretch
the Knitting a little bit to get it over
but if you do it gently then it
shouldn't break and since we already
have the half stitch on this – on this
needle right here that we combined with
the stitch that was there to make the
right stitch count we're going to leave
that one alone and this last needle
right here we're going to pick up the
top of the stitch the top of the next
stitch over from the foot part of the
sock and add that get all our tails out
of the way and there's round one so what
I like to do most of the time so I'm
going to take my working yarn out think
that stitch and tie it in a double knot
with the tail that we started this round
with so that it's totally secure
and then I'm just going to keep knitting
my 18 remaining rounds for the leg of
the sock
all right so as you can see on my
already finished sock I have a ribbing
here and we have the final knitting yarn
that we ended with used to bound to bind
off the edge of the sock and keep it
stretchy so we're going to need this
yarn to bind off with so we're going to
pick up all these stitches with a piece
of waste yarn so I'm going to bring my
working yarn to the back and hold it
because we are going to need this do not
cut it off of your skein yet and I'm
just going to start picking up the
stitches all the way around
all right so now we're going to go ahead
and bind off the sock as we work our
ribbing and this ribbing is not hand
knit instead we're going to unravel
every other stitch five stitches down
and pick it up with a crochet hook and
work them from the other direction so
that they are purl stitches and that's
what's going to create our ribbing so
now to work our ribbing we're going to
start with this last stitch that was
knitted the one that the working yarn is
coming out of I have my crochet hook
here and I'm going to insert that into
the stitch and remove the waste yarn out
of that stitch and so this is going to
be a knit stitch this next one is going
to be a purl stitch so what I like to do
is take a stitch marker the split ring
type works well for this but you can use
any kind you want and I slip it into
that stitched it on my hook take the
hook out and in my first sock I ribbed
five rows so what I'm going to do is
take the waste yarn out of the next
stitch and I'm going to unravel five
stitches down so one two three four five
and I'm going to hang on to that little
stitch right there insert my hook from
the back and I'm going to pick up this
first ladder as you can see right here
they're doubled so you have two strands
of yarn for each ladder I'm going to
pick it up with my crochet hook and pull
it through to the back
and I'm going to do the same here again
with the next one and basically we are
working we're picking up a dropped
stitch from the back so then it creates
a row or a column I should say of purl
stitches although all the way up some
once you picked up all your ladders
you're going to come back to the front
take out that stitch marker put it in
the stitch you just ribbed and pick up
the stitch you had before and we're
basically going to work a half double
crochet in each stitch across and if you
don't crochet it's not that hard you're
just basically going to yarn over with
the needle you're going to insert it
into that stitch remove the marker yarn
over again and pull up a loop now the
difference between this and a regular
half double crochet is that we're going
to change it a little bit and instead of
yarning over again and pulling that loop
through all of those we're going to take
the loop we just picked up the loop that
we just pulled through and pull it
through the other two so now this next
stitch is a knit stitch in our ribbing
pattern because we can only do a knit
one purl one rib because with the 22
stitches you can't really do a knit two
purl one or a knit 3 purl 1 because the
multiples don't work out so we have a
knit a purl we're going to do another
knit and so when we do a knit stitch for
our ribbing we're not going to do
anything to it we're just going to work
into it
yarn over insert into the stitch pull up
a loop and pull that same loop through
the other two and slide out the waste
yarn now this next stitch is going to be
a purl stitch again so we're going to
put the split ring stitch marker into
the loop on our hook
pull the waste yarn out of the next
stitch and this stitch marker is going
to keep this loop from unraveling we're
going to unravel the stitch five
stitches down one two three four five
and then pick it up from the back and
then we're going to pull each ladder
through the loop on our hook till we get
back up to the top there should be five
rungs on your ladder so to speak and
that is your second column of rib
stitches the pearls and then we're going
to put the marker into this stitch pick
up this loop again and bind off this one
yarn over insert it into the stitch pull
up a loop and pull the same loop through
those other two loops so again this next
one is a knit stitch I'm going to put
the split ring stitch marker in the loop
on my hook to keep it out of the way and
I'm going to do the same thing into this
stitch then I'm going to move it to the
stitch that I'm on let go of it and I'm
going to pull the waste yarn out of the
next stitch unravel it five stitches
down one two three four five and pick it
up from the back and
pull through all of those strands of
yarn all the way up to the top stitch
marker goes back in to the stitch the
stitch gets picked up and we bind off
again like so and you're going to keep
doing this all the way around and as you
can see we've already recreated three
purl columns and so we're going to keep
doing that to every other stitch all the
way around until we get back
to here
so now that I have bound off all the
stitches all the way around back to this
first stitch now we're going to join
this together we're going to attach this
loop to this last stitch so to do that
we're going to cut the yarn and we're
actually going to pull this loop on the
hook until the tail comes out we're
going to thread that tail through our
yarn needle and as you can see here on
this top edge it looks just like a
regular crocheted edge or a knitted
bind-off if you just push those two
stitches together then you'll see the
top of this first bound off stitch and
so we're going to insert the needle into
the loop that is the top of that bound
off stitch as you can see half of the
stitch recreated and then we're going to
go back down where the yarn originally
came from under back down through the
loop that was the top of the stitch and
through the back and pull just a little
bit so that it matches all the other
stitches and as you can see the edge of
that sock is going to look totally
seamless because we have recreated
another bound-off stitch in between the
first and the last stitches so now we're
just going to weave in this tail
and I'm going to 12 it in we're going to
cut it and once you've woven in all the
rest of your tails on the inside of the
sock then your sock is finished and as
you can see here we have a continuous
leg and foot piece our heel or toe and
on both sides you can see there's no
hole where that the intersection of
these three pieces meet whereas usually
there is a hole there in most methods of
making socks on the ADI and some methods
there are also a row of holes all the
way down to the heel and this does not
have that we also have our ribbing just
like a regular sock if you were to hand
knit this without actually having to
hand knit the ribbing so I hope you
