Today you’re gonna finish your socks, but first – let’s recap.

How to knit socks

You calculated your stitch count for perfectly fitted socks (part 1). You made your cuff and leg (part 2) and learned how to make a heel (part 3).

At this point you should have your foot finished 2 inches (or 4,4 cm) shorter then your desired length of your sock.

It’s time to make decreases for toes.

Get this bundle to follow along with instructor Lucy Neatby in Craftsy’s FREE 2016 Knit-Along class! You’ll receive automatic enrollment in class, plus a 2016 Knit-Along Kit featuring all the sumptuous yarn you need to create all three class sock patterns — without the fiber selection guesswork. During the 2016 Knit-Along, you’ll knit three toe-riffic sock patterns over three months.


It doesn’t matter which sock instructions you chose, do this:

Round 1:

Needle 1 – knit to last 3 stitches, knit 2 together, knit 1;

Needle 2 – knit 1, ssk, knit to end;

Needle 3 – knit to last 3 stitches, knit 2 together, knit 1;

Needle 4 – knit 1, ssk, knit to end.

Round 2: Knit.
Repeat these two rounds until you are down to a little less than a quarter of your original stitch count.

Adjust the remaining stitches onto two needles, so that the foot’s top and bottom rows of stitches are parallel and the yarn is hanging at the end of the needle holding the sole stitches. Knit across a few stitches if you need to. Cut yarn, leaving about a 10 inch to 12 inch tail. Graft the toe together using Kitchener stitch.
