For creating this sock on the 56 peg orange loom, adjust lengths of leg and foot rnds as needed and create the heel/toes on pegs 1-29, leaving 9 pegs in the center without w&ts and 10 pegs on either side for working the w&ts.

CUFF & LEG

Work 4.5” in the following pattern (sample used 52 rnds):

HEEL

Place peg markers on pegs 1, 12, 22, & 33. Pegs 1-33 are all the pegs that will be worked for the heel. Pegs 12-22 are the pegs that will be left unwrapped during the w&t process. There will be 11 pegs on either side of the center pegs that will be the W&T pegs.

Refer to Short-row heel/toe instructions at the end of pattern for specific details.

  1. Bonjour,

    Étant française, même avec la traduction, j’ai du mal à faire les chaussettes.
    Avez vous une vidéo explicative de tout le déroulement, surtout au niveau pointe et talon ?

    En attendant, cordialement
    Mme Henry Véronique
