Scraps of yarn
UpDate – Pam asked for the directions for making Yoga Socks. Here is my version:
Materials: 1 – 50g ball of sock yarn, set #3 double point needles
Instructions: Cast on 56 sts, divide between three needles and join in round.
Work 10 rows of knit 2, purl 2, for cuff
Next round – knit every row until work measures 4 inches from beginning
Next round – increase 8 sts evenly around (knit 7, inc. 1, to end of round) Total – 64 sts.
Work 5 rounds in (K1, P1) ribbing.
Shape heel opening: next round: cast off 36 sts. Rib to end of round.
Cast on 36 sts loosely, Rejoin in rnd and rib to end of round.
Work 5 rnds in (K1, P1) ribbing.
Next rnd: Knit, decrease 8 sts evenly around. Total 56 sts.
Work in knitting every round until work measures 2 1/2 inches from end of last ribbing.
Work 10 rnds in (K1, P1) ribbing. Cast off in ribbing.
