CLOSING THE TOE

Place the stitches from peg 1 to peg 16 on  one double pointed needle

Place the remaining stitches on the second double pointed needle.

Use the kitchener stitch to close the toe.

Weave ends in. Block lightly.

Using SCC, use the double stitch to embroider some seeds on to the top of the sock. I do not recommend using beads as these make the socks uncomfortable to wear with shoes.

  • These are so cute. Love the colors.

  • Love them!

  • Love these, thank you very much.

  • Please do a video making these.

  • The colors are so bold and beautiful. Love these little socks. One word: Sweet.

  • thank you :)

  • Please make a video showing how to make these socks.

  • It is just a regular sock pattern that has a different color cuff. If you can loom a regular sock, you can use the same instructions for this. The little seeds are duplicate stitching, done after the sock is completed.

How Many Pegs for a Sock?

One of the most regular questions we receive is how many pegs do I cast on for my foot? Here is a handy little table that has some numbers that may help you.

You must first find the following:

1. The circumference around the ball of the foot.

2. Find your gauge by working a swatch in the round with the yarn you will be using, the loom you will be using and the stitch you will be using.

Once you have the above, find the closest match to the table below.

  • Hi there
    I’ve bought and I’m using the fabulous Sock Loom! And I wondered if someone could help me please?!

    At the start of the Heel & Toe Part 2 DVD, it tells me to continue wrapping until I have 5x pegs wrapped, 5x unwrapped and 5x pegs wrapped so I will then have two thirds of the pegs wrapped.

    So my question is should I wrap 5x pegs at each end of my ‘short row method’ or do I need to wrap two thirds of the number of pegs that I am currently using?

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance!

    Genevieve

  • Yep, that makes sense. You will work with the amount of pegs that are being used. so the 2/3 rule will change with each sock based on the amount of pegs used. Does that make sense? pat
