Learn to Knit Socks FAQ
You will count each row for the pattern. Right-side row + wrong-side row = 2 rows. So if the pattern tells you to work rows 1 and 2 once and then repeat those two rows 15 more times, this means that you will work a total of 16 repeats of the two rows. That will be a total of 32 rows. When you look at your knitting and count the actual rows, because you are slipping every other stitch, your fabric will look like you've only knit 16 rows.
Your sock should have the smooth side (stockinette stitch) on the outside. If it is on the inside, just push the sock through the center of the needles to the outside. You may need to push your ball of yarn through the needles to get it to the proper position. You should be working with the needles that are closest to you. If your sock was inside out, you were probably working on the far side of your sock.
For the demos I used Plymouth Yarn's DK Merino Superwash. It is 100% superwash fine merino wool.
Sorry, but this pattern is for socks worked cuff down.
No. The number of stitches in this pattern is calculated specifically for a DK- or sport-weight yarn with a gauge of 6 sts / 1". Using any other weight of yarn will result in a sock with improper sizing and poor fabric characteristics.
