Christmas Sock Ornament Knitting PatternDesigned by Maryanne Wilford Pattern knit by Sarah Bradberry. Notes
This pattern is made in the round using dpns. I prefer to keep the work on 3 dpns and knit with the 4th, so the pattern is set up this way. You will have to do some juggling with the stitch counts if you like to use 4 dpns and knit with the 5th. I worked the heel flap in plain St st. I usually work the selvedge st in K on each row. This makes it easy for me to see where I should pick up sts. I made my sock with a contrasting heel and toe. If you want yours to be all one color, ignore the references to MC or CC. I grafted the toe stitches. You could just as easily draw the yarn end through them and pull the toe closed. Materials
