Knitted Sleeping Sock.
Materials for one pair: 4 ounces white fleecy, 3 ply; 1 ounces
light blue fleecy.
These socks are knitted with white and blue wool in a diamond
pattern, and in rounds like a stocking. Begin at the upper part of
the sock; cast on 103 stitches with blue wool on pretty thick steel
knitting-needles, and knit 20 rounds of the diamond pattern as
1st round: Quite plain.
2nd round: Purled; both these rounds are worked with
3rd to 6th rounds: Knitted plain with white wool.
7th round: With blue wool; knit 3, draw the wool through
the next stitch of the 2nd round worked with blue wool, draw it out
as a loop, keep it on the needle, knit again 3 stitches, and so on.
8th round: With blue wool; the loop which has been taken up on the
preceding round is purled off together with the preceding stitch.
Repeat the 3rd and 8th rounds twice more; the loop of
one round must be placed between those of the preceding one. Then
knit with white wool 31 rounds, alternately 2 stitches knitted, 2
stitches purled, then work the foot in the diamond pattern in the
same way as usual for a stocking. The heel is formed by leaving 23
stitches on each side the seam stitch, and knitted backwards and
forwards in the diamond pattern. At the toe decrease so that the
decreasings form a seam on both sides of the toe. This is obtained
by knitting the 3rd and 4th stitches of the 1st needle together; on
the 2nd needle slip the 4th stitch before the last, knit the next
stitch and draw the slipped stitch over the knitted one; decrease
in the same manner on the other 2 needles of this round. Repeat
these decreasings exactly in the same direction and at
the same places, so that there are always 4 stitches between the 2
decreasings at the end and at the beginning of 2 needles; they
always take place after 3 or 2 plain rounds, and at last after 1
plain round. The remaining stitches are knitted off 2 and 2
together. To complete the sock, the outline of the sole is marked
by working slip stitches with blue wool in crochet all round it;
work also slip stitches on the selvedge stitch of the heel. The
stocking is finished off at the top with a double round of loops in
blue wool, worked over a mesh four-fifths of an inch wide.
