Knitty Bitty Sock- Knit

Knitty Bitty Sock
Knit pattern by Nadine Borovicka

A tiny little sock that makes a great addition to a key chain or as a charm on your cell phone. It is also a great way to use up little bits of sock yarn if you aren’t crazy enough to make a blanket out of your sock yarn scraps (I say that out of love, I am making one of those blankets myself).  I also sell these in my Etsy store, Nadine's Nook.

Two Size 1 DPN’s- important since you will be working I-cord
A small scrap of sock yarn
Tapestry needle

CO- Cast on
St(s)- Stitch(es)
K- Knit
P- Purl
K2tog- Knit two together

• CO 6 Sts
• K one row
• Begin working in I-cord for about ½ an inch or however long you want the cuff to be
• Still in I-cord: K 5, Turn
• Now working back and forth: P 4, turn
• K 3, turn
• P 2, turn
• K 3, turn
• P 4, turn
• K 5
• Back to working in I-cord: K 6
• K three more rows
• K2Tog, K 2, K2Tog
• Bind off by gathering the last 4 stitches on a tapestry needle and pulling tight. Use this length of yarn to also close the small holes that will form on the sides of the heel where you worked the short rows. Weave in ends.

You can either use the ends to tie the sock on to your display of choice (instead of weaving them in) or you can run a split ring through some of the stitches at the top. I like using the Cell Phone fobs to attach them to things.

Above, when I say working in I-cord, I mean to continue bringing the yarn around the back of the stitches instead of turning your work and working on the wrong side.

Am I allowed to sell the sock I made with your pattern?

Hi Zeko, I am actually selling these on my Etsy store so I would prefer for you not to sell on there. I can't stop you though. But if you plan to make them for a craft fair or for a yarn store, feel free.

Again, my copyright of the pattern does not include what you do with the finished product. But I do appreciate your consideration.
