BAMBOO RIB SOCKS

By Emmy Coplea

MATERIALS
2 skeins Dyed JEMS Sock Yarn, set of 5 US #1˝ DPNs

CUFF
CO 60 sts, K4, P2 ribbing for 20 rows.

LEG
Row 1: *P7, K4, P1; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2-4: *P1, K4, P1; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 5: *P1, K4, P7; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 6-8: repeat rows 2-4.
Continue pattern until leg is desired length, or approximately 7-8”.

SHORT ROW HEEL
Arrange sts so that the next 30 sts are on one needle for the heel (working yarn is at the right edge of these sts)— Leave remaining 30 sts on two needles to be worked as instep later. Work heel sts in short rows as foll:
Row 1:(RS) K 29, turn (1 st un-worked on left needle).
Row 2: Yo backwards, p28, turn (1 st un-worked).
Row 3: Yo as usual, knit to paired sts made by yo of previous row (the yo will form a loop out of the side of the adjacent st), leaving 3 sts on left needle (i.e., do not work the pair), turn.
Row 4: Yo backwards, purl to paired sts made by the yo of the previous row, turn.
Rep the last 2 rows until there are 12 total sts between YOs [10 unpaired sts between YOs], ending with a WS row. Turn so RS is facing.

Second Half of Short Row Heel
Row 1: (RS) Yo as usual, knit to the paired st made by yo of previous row, k1, (the first st of the pair), correct the mount of the yo (so that the leading edge is on the front of the needle), k2tog (the yo with the first st of the next pair, leaving a yo as the first st on the left needle), turn.
Row 2: (WS) Yo backwards, purl to paired st made by yo of previous row, purl the first st of the pair, ssp (the yo with the first st of the next pair, leaving a yo as the first st on the left needle; see Stitch Guide), turn.
Row 3: Yo, knit to the paired st made by yo of previous row, knit the first st of the pair (the next 2 loops will be YOs), correct the mount of each of these YOs, k3tog (2 YOs with the first st of the next pair), turn.
Row 4: Yo backwards, purl to next yo (the next 2 loops are YOs), sssp (2 YOs with the first st of the next pair; see Stitch Guide), turn.
Row 5: Yo, knit to next yo (the next 2 loops will be YOs), correct the mount of each of these YOs, k3tog (2 YOs with the first st of the next pair), turn.
Rep the last 2 rows until all YOs of heel have been consumed, ending with Row 4. The last turn will bring RS facing—30 sts + 1 yo. Joining rnd: YO, knit to YO at end of needle, place this YO on next needle (first instep needle), k2tog (the YO plus first st of next needle), work to last instep st, place YO at beg of next (heel) needle onto instep needle and work these 2 sts as ssk (last st of rnd plus yo)— 60 sts.

FOOT
Continue instep in bamboo pattern, and knit bottom of foot in St st, until foot it desired length.

ROUNDED TOE
For Rows 1,2,3,5,6,8,9,11,13,15 knit all sts. For Rows 4, 7, 10, 12, 14, 16 Needle 1: knit until 3 sts before end, k2tog, k1. Needle 2: k1, ssk, knit to end of needle. Needle 3: Repeat Needle 1. Needle 4: Repeat Needle 2.?After Row 16 Continue the decreasing row until there are 16 sts left. Knit stitches from needle 1 onto needle 4. Slip sts from needle 2 onto needle 3. Graft remaining sts together, and sew in ends.
