See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size.




Worked in the round on double pointed needles, top down.

Cast on 64-72-80 stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Baby Merino. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= purl 1/knit 1) for 2-3-4 cm. Now work pattern as follows (choose diagram for your size): A.1 (= 33-37-41 stitches), continue with rib as before over the remaining stitches. Repeat pattern vertically. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When 2 repetitions of A.1 have been worked vertically (piece measures approx. 10-11-12 cm), work as follows: Work A.1 as before over the first 33-37-41 stitches (= on top of foot), cast off the next 31-35-39 stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl (= back of foot). Work next round as follows: Work pattern as before over A.1, cast on 25-31-35 new stitches (= under foot) = 58-68-76 stitches. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue with A.1 and rib. When 2-2-3 repetitions of A.1 have been worked vertically from cast off and cast on of new stitch (= 4-4-5 repetitions in total from cast-on edge) continue with knit over knit and purl over purl until piece measures 10-11-12 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Fasten off. Work the other sock the same way.


= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On next round purl or knit yarn over - see next round in diagram. They should make holes.
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked

Ik beoefen joga omdat mijn lichaam er sterker en soepel van wordt. Dit heeft niks met religie te maken. Dus ik ben uitermate tevreden met de sokjes, eindelijk warme voeten tijdens mijn wekelijks uurtje sport/ontspanning Dank je wel

Pas d'accord avec Esther concernant la serie yoga. En plus les sacs pour les tapis peuvent servir aussi pour les nattes de plage etc.. et les chaussettes pour la danse, le sport sans religion et philosophie. merci pour ces modèles.

Hi, Why did you choose for a series regarding YOGA? I liked the Drops brand much because of a rather neutral strategy instead of promoting/paying attention to a specific world religion or world philosophy... So I'm not particular happy about this new approach. Kinds regards, Esther
