Swanklets

Or, Swanky Anklets! 

Swanklets
Yarn:
350 yards fingering weight

 Needles:  set of 4 or 5 double points in size #1, or size that gives you gauge.  One darning needle for closing toe and weaving in ends.

 Gauge:  8 stitches/inch

 

 

 Cast on 64 stitches and divide with 16 stitches on each needle.  Join and proceed with leg of anklet.

Leg: 

K 10 rows.

 *K2, p2, repeat across for 2 inches.

 K 15 rows.

Heel:

The tail of your cast on yarn is the middle of your heel and here is where we start the garter stitch heel.

  1. K 15, wrap the first stitch from the next needle and turn. 
  2. With same needle, K 31, wrap the first stitch from the next needle and turn. (All 32 stitches will be on one needle).
  3.  K until the stitch prior to the first wrapped stitch.  Wrap the stitch and turn.

 Repeat row 3 until you have 8 unwrapped stitches in the middle.

  1. k8, wrap the first wrapped stitch and turn.  (this stitch will now be double-wrapped)
  2. k8, wrap the first wrapped stitch and turn.  (this stitch will now be double-wrapped)
  3. k to the first double-wrapped stitch and k that stitch.  Wrap the next stitch and turn.

Repeat row 6 until you have double-wrapped every wrapped stitch.  You should now be on the right side.

Foot:

K around until 2-1/4 inches less than desired length of sock.  On your first round, I picked up an extra stitch in the apex between the heel and the instep and knit it with the next stitch to keep from getting a hole in that corner.

Toe:

 Starting at the instep, work as follows:

  1. K 31, wrap the first stitch from the next needle and turn.
  2. K 31, wrap the first stitch from the next needle and turn.
  3. K until the stitch prior to the first wrapped stitch.  Wrap the stitch and turn.

 Repeat row 3 until you have 8 unwrapped stitches in the middle.

  1. k8, wrap the first wrapped stitch and turn.  (this stitch will now be double-wrapped)
  2. k8, wrap the first wrapped stitch and turn.  (this stitch will now be double-wrapped)
  3. k to the first double-wrapped stitch and k that stitch.  Wrap the next stitch and turn.

Repeat row 6 until you have double-wrapped every wrapped stitch.  You should now be on the right side.

Use Kitchener stitch to close toe on the sole side.
