Free Pattern~ No Sew Soap Socks

No Sew Soap Socks

Yarn: SWTC Bamboo (Handpaintedyarn Ejido) instructions given for both sizes

Needles: Size 4 (10) US, 40″ length for Magic Loop method

Gauge is not dire here, you should be fine, it’s a pretty stretchy tube.

Using a long tail cast on, cast on 20 (12) sts

– rotate sts on the needle so that the cast on bottom is on top, move sts to other end of your circular needle.

-pick up sts through the front bump of the cast on edge (you can see a good pictorial in this pattern).

– You will now have 40 (24) sts

For the bamboo sock I chose to do a broken up stockinette & garter pattern:

-work *4 rows knit, 1 row purl, 1 row knit, 1 row purl, 1 row knit, 1 row purl, 1 row knit, 1 row purl* repeat these rows ending 4 rows knit, when it measures the desired length. (you can slip your bar of soap inside to see how long you want to go).

For the wool sock I chose to do all stockinette. Just knit around & around until it’s the desired length.

Close with kitchener stitch.

To make loop:

Using end of tail from kitchener seam, crochet 10 chain, join through base of first chain.

Tie in ends & use!
