Cut the yarn leaving the long tail. Change to the blue color again and leave a long tail.

Repeat everything starting from the Row 30. After that cut the yarn leaving long tail. Change yarn color to yellow and repeat knitting toes.

Bind off all stitches. Cut the yarn leaving at least 15 cm tail.

Place the sock with the wrong side facing up, fold toe part, thread the tail through a yarn or tapestry needle, start stitching up toe from one side using mattress stitch method and then from other side. If the length of the tail that you have left is not enough, you will need to attach a new one. Weave in ends. After that find the tail that is corresponding to the main sock color, thread it and start stitching up the sock from one side using the same mattress stitch method. Repeat for another side. Do not cut the yarn. Now find the tail that corresponds to the heel color and stitch up the heel from both sides. Return to the tail that you we using to stitch up the sides and let’s join the heel and the ankle. IMPORTANT, while sewing the heel at times you are going to insert the needle twice into 1 stitch on the top. We are doing it because we have more stitches on the bottom than on the top and want to get a neat seam. Join the ankle and the heel till the center and repeat for the second side, using another tail. Finally, stitch up the ankle using either the tail you left at the very beginning or any nearest tail.

Check the video for helpful demonstration.

Cut the yarn and weave in ends.
