Mini Cabled Socks

by Linda

Another great sock in Paton's Classic Wool, a nice merino blend, this time worked with miniature cables. No cable needle required. These are ankle socks and therefore quite short in the leg.

  1. Cast on 40 sts and work 10 rounds k1p1 ribbing - 12/16/12
  2. *K1, p1, (k1 and make 1 in same st), p1*, repeat from * to * around - 15/20/15
  3. *k1, p1, k2, p1*, repeat around.
  4. *k1, p1, cr, p1*, repeat around
    CR (Cross) - skip first st, knit second st on needle, do not remove from needle, knit first (skipped) st, remove both from needle.
  5. *k1, p1, k2, p1*, repeat around.
  6. Repeat last 3 rows 4 times altogether. For a longer sock, work more pattern repeats.
  7. Heel Flap: K 10, place last 5 sts onto needle 2 to be worked later, turn.
  8. Slip 1, k9, k 14 from other needle, put rem sts onto ndl 2.
  9. Slip 1, knit across remaining 23 sts on needle.
  10. Repeat this last row til 14 garter st ridges show on right side of work, end ready to work right side.
  11. Turn heel: Knit 15 sts, k2tog, turn (leaves next 7 sts unworked).
  12. Slip 1, k6, k2tog, turn (leaves 7 sts unworked).
  13. Slip 1, k6, k2tog, turn.
  14. Repeat last row til 8 sts remain on needle, ready to work a right side row.
  15. Knit across those 8 sts. Onto same needle, pick up 16 sts along side of heel flap. Onto next needle, pick up a st in space between needles, work across ndl 2 in cable pattern as already established, pick up a st in space between needles. On third needle, pick up 16 sts along other side of heel flap, k 4 sts from ndl 1 onto ndl 3 - 20/28/20
  16. Knit across ndl 1 to within last 3 sts on needle, k2tog, k1. On next needle, k2tog, work in pattern (the CR row) to within last 2 sts on ndl, knit 2 together. On last ndl, k1, k2tog tbl (or ssk), knit to end of needle. 19/26/19
  17. Knit across ndl 1, work in pattern across ndl 2, knit across ndl 3.
  18. Knit across ndl 1, work in pattern across ndl 2, knit across ndl 3.
  19. Repeat these last three rounds (making gusset decreases on CR round of pattern) til 48 sts remain.
  20. Continue to work evenly til you're an inch or so short of the desired finished length (I worked 24 pattern repeats from cuff to this point).
  21. Shape Toe: Rearrange sts to 12/24/12. Knit to within last 3 sts of ndl 1, k2tog, k1. On ndl 2, k 1, k2tog tbl (or ssk), knit to within last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. On ndl 3, k1, k2tog tbl, knit to end of needle.
  22. Knit one round with no decreases.
  23. Repeat these last two rounds til 24 sts remain on needles. Knit sts from needle 1 onto needle 3, break yarn and graft toe. Weave in yarn ends.
