Deborah’s Lorax Socks
In our latest podcast, episode 16, I shared some socks I am knitting for my 1o year-old daughter. Some have requested the pattern. I don’t have an actual pattern, but will happily share some of the details, and the two-row braided column stitch pattern I used. I am not a pattern writer. Hopefully this makes sense.
Cast on 52 stitches on 2.25mm magic loop.
Knit 15 rows of a 2×2 rib, beginning with k2. Using a 2×2 rib will allow the braided stitch design to line up with the ribbing.
Begin the leg. I only knit the pattern on the front needle, and the back was knit all in stockinette stitch.
- Row 1: k4, *sl 1 stitch pwise, k1, yo, psso the k1 and the yo* , k6, repeat from *, k6, repeat from *, k4
- Row 2: knit all stitches
Continue the pattern all the way down the top of the foot.
At first glance, it seems as though you will loose a stitch with each psso, but try it, you will see that you keep your original stitch count.
If you knit socks with this pattern, I’d love to see them. Tag photos of them with #Loraxsocks or share them on our Ravelry group page.
