• Size 2 double-pointed needles
  • 2 skeins of Patons Lace-weight yarn
  • Stitch holder (so I can do both socks section-by-section)
  • Tapestry needle


I’ll be following the pattern here.  There’s three sets of instructions for three different yarn weights.  I’ll be doing the lightest, in purple.

I cast on with the loosest version I know.  Just start with a slipknot, then knit a stitch and slip it back to the left needle and repeat until you have enough stitches, 64 in my case.

The ankle itself is supposed to be made of (knit 2, purl 2) ribbing.  I was worried that was going to come out too busy, but it looks fine.  I don’t like tall socks, so there’s only a few inches of it.
