Fourth attempt 🙂

I finally put on a sock that fits just right, measured for the height, figured out where I wanted decreases to begin and end, then re-knit to match:

Decreases from calf measurement down to ankle measurement (-16 sts) over a length of 4 1/2″, that was 2 sts every 6 rows (9/16″).

Alpha Stockings in Madelinetosh Sock

love love love madelinetosh!

They really are the same length, they aren’t pulled up evenly!

Madelinetosh Tosh Sock colorway Duchess from Knit Purl in Portland

A toe up pattern with a clever attractive heel, it makes me smile to think of it. The cable design is pretty and skillfully adapted for knitting in the round.

Modifications:
eliminated the twisted stitches on the heel for a smoother fit at a high friction location
made the ribbing more ribby, for a more elastic fit

Planet Earth Fibers beaded silk in color Rouge

Now I need to figure out how to add the beaded silk…
lacy trim?
embroidery?
leaves?

On my first attempt the colors were pooling so that one side of the sock was red and the other side was green:

I modified the pattern, removing the first stitch of the leaf chart for a total of four stitches per round. Just enough to make the colors swirl in a nice spiral:

Modified for swirling instead of pooling
