No Slouch Socks

Note that this knits up much faster if you know how to cable without a cable needle. I’ve omitted heel and toe instruction because I always ignore those sections of a pattern in favor of my own heels and toes. I used a *Sl1,K1* heel and a wedge toe for this pair.

Right Sock:

CO 60 sts. Work K2P2 rib for desired cuff length.

Row 1: *K2, P2, C4F, P2*

Rows 2-4: *K2, P2, K4, P2*

Dividing for the heel, I moved my stitches around a bit so that the following 34 stitches were on the instep needle:

P1, *K2, P2, C4F, P2* (repeat 3 times), K2, P1

I knit the heel with the remaining 26 stitches.

Left Sock:

CO 60 sts. Work K2P2 rib for desired cuff length.

Row 1: *K2, P2, C4B, P2*

Rows 2-4: *K2, P2, K4, P2*

Dividing for the heel, I moved my stitches around a bit so that the following 34 stitches were on the instep needle:

P1, *K2, P2, C4F, P2* (repeat 3 times), K2, P1

I knit the heel with the remaining 26 stitches.

Abbreviations:

C4F: Slip 2 sts to cable needle, hold in front. Knit the next 2 sts on left needle, knit the 2 sts on the cable needle.

C4B: Slip 2 sts to cable needle, hold in back. Knit the next 2 sts on left needle, knit the 2 sts on the cable needle.
