Today I’d like to share with you a sneek peek at my latest fun project. I call it the “Foot Glove.”
I started out with the intention of using one color for every toe to illustrate the contruction, but afterwards liked the results so much I decided to continue the stripes throughout the entire sock. This is definitely a great project for using up the sock yarn stash. All you have to remember is to divide each color in half (two balls, one for each sock) then knit away.
Presently, I am working on writing up the pattern and will have it in my ETSY store soon. This was a bit of an engineering challenge, as the toes are not simply attach in a straight line, but need to be comformed to the shape of the foot, but I soon figured it out and will be giving you step by step instructions in the pattern.
Of course, once you get past the toe section, you can let your imagination run wild with all your pretty colored yarns. The techniques I used in this Toe-Up pattern included jogless stripes, my no-wrap short row heel, “no-dots” rib color change, and an invisible bind off. All these techniques will be included in the pattern.
It has been great fun knitting this up. I hope you have fun knitting up your version, too.
