Knitting ribbing of Christmas socks

Using red yarn color cast on 45 sts or any other number multiple of 4, plus 3 extra sts, plus 2 selvage sts.

Rows 1 (WS): sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

Row 2: sel s, [p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, sel s.

Rows 3 (WS): sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

Cut the yarn. Change yarn color from red to white. In the next round, when you change color, always knit the first stitch instead of slipping it. Doing it this way you will not have jogs when you start seaming up socks.

Row 4: k1, [p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, sel s.

Rows 5 (WS): sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

Row 6: sel s, [p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, sel s.

Rows 7 (WS): sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

Row 8: sel s, [p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, sel s.

Rows 9 (WS): sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

Row 10: sel s, [p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, sel s.

Rows 11 (WS): sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

Row 12: sel s, [p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, sel s.

Rows 13 (WS): sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

The ribbing at this point measures 6 cm. Do not cut the yarn. Change the yarn color from white to red.

Knitting body part of Christmas socks:

Row 1: k1, [k3, slip next stitch holding working yarn in back] – repeat till the end, k3, sel s.

Row 2: sel s, [p3, slip next stitch holding working yarn in front] – repeat till the end, p3, sel s.

Change the yarn color from red to white. Do not cut the yarn.

Row 3: k1, [p1, k1, p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, k1, p1, sel s.

Row 4: sel s, purl all stitches, sel s.

Change the yarn color from white to red. Do not cut the yarn.

Row 5: k1, k1, slip next stitch holding working yarn in back, [k3, slip next stitch holding working yarn in back] – repeat till the end, k1, sel s.

Row 6: sel s, p1, slip next stitch holding working yarn in front, [p3, slip next stitch holding working yarn in front] – repeat till the end, p1, sel s.

Change the yarn color from red to white.

Row 7: k1, [p1, k1, p1, k1] – repeat till the end, p1, k1, p1, sel s.

Row 8: sel s, purl all stitches, sel s.

Now we need to divide all stitches in 3 parts and knit the central part only.

45 sts / 3 = 15 sts

15/15/15

The number of stitches for central part as for the main sock pattern must be multiple of 4 plus 3 extra stitches and plus 2 selvage stitches.

15 – 3 extra st – 2 sel st = 10 st

Closest multiple of 4 will be 8 st.

Now add back 3 extra st and 2 sel st to 8 st = 13 st.

Since we had 15 st, now we have to equally divide 2 extra stitches on the sides and we will end up with 16/13/16 division of stitches.
