The path – a pair of simple socks with a modified ice block heel, for a roomier fit around the arch of the foot.

SIZES: 1, (2, 3, 4), 5, [6, 7, 8].
Foot circumference: approx. 15.4, (16.8, 18, 19.5), 21, [22.5, 23.8, 25.5] cm.
Sock circumference: approx. 14.6, (16, 17.3, 18.6), 20, [21.3, 22.6, 24] cm.

MESH DENSITY: 30 stitches & 40 rounds = 10 cm, knitted in stockinette stitch, with the thicker needle.

YARN: Sock yarn with approx. 400m/100g, we recommend 2-thread old series from Rauma . The yarn consumption depends on the selected size and the desired length. Size 1–3, foot length 18–21 cm: 200m.
Size 4–6, foot length 20–26 cm: 400m. Size 7–8, foot length 25–28 cm: 500m.

KNITTING POINTS & CROCHET: 2.5 mm double pointed needles or Magic Loop for stockinette knitting.
2 mm double pointed needles or Magic Loop for the elastic.
Crochet hook approx. 2.5–3 mm for the provisional arrangement.

ACCESSORIES: Markers, stitch holder, darning needle, leftover yarn in the same thickness but contrasting color.

The socks are knitted in the round, from the cuff down, with a modified ice heel. The modified heel creates a wedge, which provides a better fit around the arch of the foot. It also gives the opportunity to try the sock in the meantime.

The sock starts with an elastic knitted cuff, the shaft is then knitted in stockinette stitch. Half of the stitches are placed on a stitch holder and new stitches for the sole are cast on with a provisional lay-up. The wedge is created by decreases on both sides of the sock, the foot is then knitted straight down to the toes. After the decreases for the toes, the last stitches are sewn together with a purl stitch.

The stitches left on the stitch holder and the stitches from the temporary lay-up then create the heel, which is worked around and decreased on both sides. Here, too, the last stitches are sewn together with the help of a purl stitch.

Measure the circumference of the foot at its widest point, just above the toes. If you're between sizes, choose the smaller size for a tighter sock (recommended for adults), or the larger size for more room (recommended if you're knitting a child's socks). The circumference of the finished sock will be approx. 1 cm narrower than the foot. Note that differences in mesh density will affect the sock measurements. Double check your stitch density and adjust the gauge of the needle if necessary. The length of the sock is adjusted according to your measurements.
