Basic sock pattern for Regia Jacquard
Gauge: the pattern works out best at a gauge of 7 ½ st/inch. I usually use size 1 needles.
Size: to fit an 8" ankle.
Cuff: Cast on 60 stitches and knit in K1, P1 rib for 1 ½ - 2".
Leg: Switch to stockinette stitch ( knit every round) and continue on 60 st. until desired length.
Dutch Heel: Leaving the 30 instep stitches on needles and using CC , work heel flap back and forth over remaining 30 sts in heel stitch of your choice.
Regular heel stitch :Row 1 sl 1, * k1, sl 1* repeat from * across ending with k1
Row 2 sl 1, purl across
Work even in heel stitch until heel flap is about 2.25" long.
Turn Heel: Working in short rows over heel flap stitches:
Row 1 - sl 1, k19, ssk, Turn
Row 2 - sl 1, p10, p2tog, Turn
Row 3 - sl 1, k 10, ssk, Turn
Ending with row 2, repeat rows 2 & 3 until all stitches are used and there are 12 st on the needle.
Gusset: Knit first 6 stitches. Rounds now start in middle of heel flap. Knit remaining 6stitches with new needle (needle 1 ), pick up 1 stitch in each of the slipped edge stitches along the heel flap, and 1 additional stitch where heel flap and instep join. Work across instep (needles 2 & 3 ) continuing in leg pattern. Pick up and knit 1 stitch where instep and heel flap join and 1 stitch in each slipped stitch along the edge of the other side of the heel flap, work remaining 6 stitches (needle 4). Needles 1 and 4 should have the same number of stitches, these are for the foot. Working instep stitches in leg pattern, and foot stitches in stockinette, knit 1 row.
* Next row - Knit to last 2 stitches on needle 1, K2tog. Work instep stitches on needles 2& 3. On needle 4 ssk, knit to end. Work 2 rounds even. Repeat from * until there are 15 st on each needle. 60 st. total
