* my sparkly socks *

So, as I promised on instagram (tantnord) I’m putting the pattern for my sparkly socks here.

These socks are super super cozy and they’re so fast to make!! Took me one day to finish. Purfect when you want to knit Everything!


I used Järbo Raggi (100 g) and knitting needles EU size 5.
Basically I followed the same pattern as for my first pair of socks in this blog, and the pattern can be found on Järbos webpage (http://media.jarbo.se/patterns/pdf/90384_low.pdf?&artnr=90384&lang=se).

Though this is only in Swedish, Norwegian and Danish.

This pattern is for EU size 35 since I have tiny tiny feet, and you can either follow the pattern for bigger sizes or just add any multiple of 4 stitches when casting on, for bigger sizes, or why not ask and I’ll translate the pattern for a bigger size.


Cast on 36 stitches on sock needles, divide as evenly as possible on 4 needles.

Knit 2, Purl 2, Knit 2, Purl 2 and so on until it measures 3 cm.

On next row knit the last 2 stitches on every needle together. You should now have 32 stitches.

Knit two rounds.

Now it’s time for the heel. I usually knit the heel on one needle, so when I get to the second needle I keep on going with the one I’m already using. If you’re making the socks bigger, you will have to make the heel patch longer.

See to that you have 8 stitches on every needle (16 for front and 16 for heel).

Knit first needle, but not the last stitch. Put the yarn in front of the needles and slip the last stitch.

Turn. Knit first stitch.

Purl 14 stitches, put yarn in front of needle, slip stitch, turn. These are the 16 stitches you will use for your heel. Knit and purl back and forth 14 times, end with purl, slip the last stitch every time you get to the edge and knit it when you have turned.

Next it’s time for the heel wedge. This will also be different if you’re making the socks bigger.
Knit 10, knit next 2 together, knit 1, turn.
Slip one, purl 5, purl 2 together, purl 1, turn.
Slip one, knit 6, knit 2 tog, knit 1, turn.
Slip one, purl 7, purl 2 tog, purl 1, turn.
Slip one, knit 8, knit 2 tog, knit 1, turn.
Last time. Slip one, purl 8, purl 2 tog, if there are any stitches left, purl, turn.

Put the heel stitches back on 2 needles (5 on each).
Now it’s my opinion that making the edge stitches that we did for the heel, comes in handy.
Pick up 8 stitches on each side of the heel as you knit around the sock. I usually pick up the yarn through the edge stitch, it gives stability and so far I have no gaps in my socks, which usually is the case when just picking up yarn from anywhere as you go down the heel towards the next needle.

Knit around the sock and on every second round, knit 2 tog in end of first needle and in the beginning of the fourth needle (these are your two heel needles). Go on until you have 18 stitches left on your heel needles and still 16 on your top needles.

Continue till the sock measures 16,5 cm from the heel.

On next round, *knit until 3 stitches left, slip one, knit one, pass slipped stitch over knitted, knit one.
On next needle, knit two, slip next stitch over the just knitted stitch*. Repeat ** on needle 3 and 4.

Do this every second round until you have 18 stitches left. Then repeat on every row until you have 10 stitches left. Knit all 2 tog. Pull yarn through the stitches and pull tight and fasten.


If you really really want to make these in a bigger size, just ask and I can translate the pattern for a bigger size
