There is nothing more comfortable on a cold autumn or winter evening than warm socks. After all, if the feet are warm, then chilliness recedes.
Classic socks are knitted on 5 knitting needles. Almost all socks are so tied. To knit socks such a tool as a hook is used not often. Moreover, it will be interesting to acquaint readers with this method of making wool socks. In addition, several author secrets will be revealed, which are used in order to get thick and warm socks.
For knitting, choose two types of yarn: one acrylic thread is quite thin, the other is pure wool, too, thin. We will knit them in a pair. Acrylic will give strength to the product, wool - the body and the required density.
Depending on the resulting thickness of the double filament, choose a hook. Knitting should be quite dense.
Crochet sock begins, unlike knitting with a toe. Another useful experience: it is worth knitting two socks at once, especially if you don’t count loops and don’t make a knitting scheme, they turn out faster and symmetry is observed.
We begin knitting with a loop amigurumi.This is a special eyelet that allows you to get a tight circle from the very beginning so that there is no gap at the very beginning of the mating. It is called so, because this technique was invented for knitting amigurumi toys. We begin to work with the eyelet around the index finger, which we tie around the circle with ordinary posts without a crochet in the amount of 6 pieces, and then, remove the loop from the finger and pull the ring for the free end, so that all the loops close. For a more detailed study, you can find a video with a knitting tutorial for amigurumi rings.
Then we continue knitting in a circle, adding loops evenly until we get a circle to form the toe of the desired diameter.
Approximate measurements for our knitting method: for a size 36-38, the circle should be 7-8 cm in diameter, for a size of 39-41, a diameter of 8-9 cm, etc.
After that, we stop adding loops and continue knitting in a circle, thus knitting a part of the sock from toe to heel. Try on a sock. We knit, taking into account the fact that the sock should get too big for at least a size.
Knit heel. First, the lower part of the heel is knitted with a straight cloth from the columns with a crochet or stitches without a crochet if a more dense texture is needed. The width of the heel is equal to the width of the toe, i.e.half loops around the circumference of the sock. The height of the heel is half its length, i.е. adding it in half we get a square. The last row of the heel canvass should go in the direction of the general scheme, i.e. mating should continue on the outside of the product.
Next, we return to circular knitting. We tie the heel fabric to the angle of connection with the toe part. We knit three loops in the corner with elongated columns, which are made as follows: the working thread is pulled through the bottom loop, and then the crochet column is knitted.
This technique is used on both sides of the heel. In this way, the heel joint is filled with the toe part of the sock. When the angle of the joint is filled, turn off the loops evenly around the entire circumference until their number matches the number of loops of the toe part. Next, continue to knit in a circle to the desired height of the sock.
Finish knitting sock jagged edge. Rapport strapping: * in one loop of the lower row of 3 st. With double crochet, 3 ce, 3 of st. With double crochet, skip 2 loops of the lower row *.
After completing the knitting, we get two identical socks of a slightly larger size than we need.
The next action is washing in hot water. Without constraint, you can wash in a washing machine at 60 ° C, or boil socks in a container with water on the stove for 15-20 minutes. Immerse in cold water, then remove, give shape and leave to dry in the expanded form. Naturally, with such a heat treatment, the socks will "sit down" and acquire the desired size, while they will not be loose with a uniform solid viscous.
As a result, the socks are dense, fluffy and very warm. Carry and give with pleasure.
