how to knit socks spokes

How can I contact the socks? This question does not idle, despite the fact that knitting socks - the so-called "classics of the genre." Probably, socks and stockings were the first garments that people began to knit. Or maybe it is for socks and stockings and knitting was invented? Not for nothing is the easiest kind of knitted hosiery knitting called. But we will not go into historical details, but rather consider the classic version of knitting socks. So, how to knit socks spokes?

For this we need the yarn (preferably wool or feather) and special hosiery needles (set of five pieces). Before you calculate the size of the product, and the density of knitting. How to do it? To calculate the density of the knit test piece about ten by ten (or even five of five) centimeters. And then consider how many rows of loops and placed in one centimeter. Then we measure the volume of the ankle, and multiply it by the number of loops in the centimeter. It is the number of loops, and will need to start working.

Knit top of the sock

We collect the required number of loops, distributing them evenly on four needles (fifth - working) and proceed to vyvyazyvaniyu cuff (gum). The cuff of the sock knit elastic band (two on two or alone) in a circle. Knit the first row, make a loop in the ring. To do this, move the last (fourth) spoke to the first and second series begin to knit with the first edge of the loop. Eraser can do all the cuff or just the upper part. The height of the cuff of the sock may be different, but as a rule, it should not exceed the length of the foot. By linking the upper part of the sock right length, proceed to vyvyazyvaniyu heel.

Knit heel sock

Hinges on the second and third spokes heel we do not need. Continuing work on only two spokes (first and fourth). The heel of the sock is made up of two parts, the backdrop and the sole. The back heel knit with a simple cloth with edge loops: facial series purl rows. Height backdrop - from three to six centimeters, depending on the size of the sock. Further, forming the heel, moving to vyvyazyvaniyu plantar part.

For this loop divide into three equal parts and distribute three spokes. If the number of loops is not exactly divisible by three, then the middle part of the wider doing (extra reserve in the middle of the loop). Next provyazyvaem number on one of the outer loops of the spokes and the middle part (stocking st). The first loop of the next needles knit together at the last loop of the middle part (the two together). Turn knitting, remove the first loop as a bead, and again - the middle row with the first loop at the spokes. Thus provyazyvaem entire middle portion alternately grasping loop extreme spokes until all the knitting does not stay on one spoke.

The result is rounded pyatochku consisting of backdrop and soles. Then we collect from wales backdrop aerial loops. Number of loops is calculated as follows: for every four rows backdrop should be recruited three loops (a classic ratio). Distribute dialed loops and loops of the central part of the heel by two needles and continue knitting in a circle has at all four spokes.

Knitting instep wedges

After we collect all the loops on the four spokes, their number will be greater than at the beginning of knitting (singing, calculated in terms of the ankle). This is normal. Unnecessary loops just form wedges instep - the widest part of the sock. In order to have the proper form toe and tightly wraps the foot, in the next step of knitting in a circle loop should gradually diminish.

For this provyazyvaem first couple of rows on all needles. Then, in the next row in the first second and third spoke first loop along the front spokes provyazyvaem tilted to the right, the last - just the front. In the fourth spoke - the first front, the next two - along the face with a slope to the left. Such way diminish the loop in every third row, until all the spokes will not remain the original number of loops (as before vyvyazyvaniya heel).

Knitting socks from the toe up lift

Then knit a sock on the front range of embroidery foot to the desired length (before the toes). Knit round toe and a short or extended depending on the shape of the foot and finger length (in children's socks toe is usually more rounded).

For the formation of the toe and the completion of knitting begin to diminish the loop at the end of the sock. To properly calculate the beginning of the toe, try on nedovyazanny sock. If he already comes before the little finger, then proceed to the knitting toe. It is possible to make a smooth, gradually diminishing the loop at the end of each spoke, or relief.

Relief decrease toe loops do symmetrically on the sides of the feet. For this provyazyvaem two loops together, the two face, pulling the two loops together. Two of the subtraction is done through a number, and then - in a row. The last five or six loops close one row.
