Openwork Cuff Variation
(to be used with basic sock pattern)
By: Sandy Miner
This is an easy to follow lacy pattern cuff that makes the everyday sock pattern a little fancier yet is suitable for anytime wear.
Materials : same yarn and needle requirements as adult or child socks.
Abrreviations: K = knit P = purl tog = together YO = yarn over needle (this creates a stitch)
Using the same amount of stitches as called for in the sock pattern instead of doing a ribbing of k1, p1 or k2, p2 for the cuff use the following:
Work a ribbing of K2, P2 for 8 rounds
Knit 2 rounds
Begin Openwork Pattern and work as follows:
Round 1) * K2 tog, YO, repeat from *
Rounds 2, 3 & 4) Knit around
Repeat the 4 rounds of openwork pattern 8 times more ending with round 4. Using the basic adult pattern now start with "divide for heel" and continue as directed for the rest of the sock.
Using the basic child sock pattern repeat the rounds of openwork 4 times and continue with "ankle"
