Single Bed Sock

Instructions for socks with ribbed tops but main part knitted "flat" on the single bed, with 2 clever flat joining techniques described and a tip for grafting. Once removed from machine, they are ready to try on before a small amount of sewing up.

The pattern is very adaptable - for example you can use a garter carriage on the leg and instep sections or maybe include some simple lace pattern, or stripes.
I used Forsell Software 4 ply 60% wool 40% nylon, but unfortunately this is now discontinued.
I suggest using a yarn which has a minimum of 20% nylon. Uppingham Yarns sell suitable yarn.
An alternative is to add bulk nylon (also called woolly nylon) to the toe and heel sections. This is also sold by Uppingham Yarns.
4 sizes- children's to men's
