Two-color socks made on two needles knitting pattern:

MAKE TWO.

Using Color A cast on 40 sts.

Rows 1-13: sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end, sel s. Or rib until the piece reaches 5.5-6 cm. Knit a total number of rows that is an odd quantity.

Switch to Color B. In the row immediately following the color change, slip the first selvage stitch and then introduce the new yarn color. Hold off on cutting the yarn until I give further instructions.

Rows 14-17: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s.

Switch to Color A. When picking up the new color yarn, make sure to pull it to the back of your work, on the wrong side of the sock.

Rows 18-21: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s.

Rows 38-41: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s. At this point sock should measure about 13 cm in length. Cut the yarn.

Follow the next steps for calculating the heel:

40 sts /2 = 20 sts.

20 sts/2 = 10 sts.

Place stitch markers in the following order along the row: 10 sts (heel), pm, 20 sts (central part), pm, 10 sts (heel).

Switch to color A.

Row 42: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s. Turn.

Heel (side 1):

Rows (RS) 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16: sel s, k8, sel s. Turn.

Bind off all stitches. Once you have the last stitch on your needle, pick up 9 stitches along the inner edge through the back loops. Pick up only the 1st stitch through both loops. After knit all other stitches from the LHN – 30 sts. Turn.

Cut the yarn, leaving 50-60 cm length. Thread the tail through the remaining 16 stitches. Sew the sock along the edge by inserting the needle from right to left through the bumps on the right and on the left sides, which were created by knitting last selvage stitch. When you reach the heel part, insert the needle into the center of selvage stitch and pull it out thought the next one. Repeat the same step on the other side.

Cut the yarn and weave in ends.

wonderful pattern! however, there is a small mistake when you describe the selvage stitch. at the very end, you say we should knit the last stitch, when it should actually be purled

Hi Anita. For these socks i do suggest knitting the very last stitch because it will help and make it easier to make a final seam
