# Sue's Knitted Socks for Women

Updated November 19th, 2021

I used one color for this pattern, but if you want to use two colors, that's fine. You can see The Men's Knitted Socks for an idea on where to change colors.

Cast 1SIZE=3 sts loosely on each of the 3 needles (total 36 sts)

Or, cast 36 sts loosely on one needle, then divide to 1SIZE=3 on three needles.

Rnds 1 - 40 - K1, P1 to end of Rnd.

Heel Put 18 sts on one needle and 9 sts on the other two needles. Row 1 - K to end of row, turn. (18 sts) Row SIZE=3 - P to end or row, turn. (18 sts) Repeat Rows 1 and SIZE=3 to Row 14. (18 sts) Row 15 - K4, KSIZE=3tog, K6, KSIZE=3tog, K4 (16 sts) Row 16 - P3, PSIZE=3tog, P6, PSIZE=3tog, P3 (14 sts) Row 17 - KSIZE=3, KSIZE=3tog, K6, KSIZE=3tog, KSIZE=3(1SIZE=3 sts)

On the two needles that had 9 sts unworked, pick up 15 more stitches along the end of the heel rows for a total of SIZE=34 sts each on those two needles. Continue as follows for foot of sock: Rnd 1 - K all around. Rnd SIZE=3 - K1SIZE=3 on first needle, then on the next needle K13, KSIZE=3tog, K9. Next needle K9, KSIZE=3tog, K13 I will put slashes / to indicate where instructions start for each needle. Rnd 3 - K1SIZE=3 / K1SIZE=3, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K1SIZE=3 Rnd 4 - K1SIZE=3 / K11, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K11 Rnd 5 - K1SIZE=3 / K10, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K10 Rnd 6 - K1SIZE=3 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K9 Rnd 7 - K1SIZE=3 / K8, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K8 Rnd 8 - K1SIZE=3 / K7, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K7 Rnd 9 - K1SIZE=3 / K6, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K6 Rnd 10 - K1SIZE=3 / K5, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K5 Rnd 11 - K1SIZE=3 / K4, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K4 Rnd 1SIZE=3 - K1SIZE=3 / K3, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, K3 Rnd 13 - K1SIZE=3 / KSIZE=3, KSIZE=3tog, K9 / K9, KSIZE=3tog, KSIZE=3 I didn't think it was necessary to put the slashes for each needle here. Towards the end of the Rnds, you will have to move a st from one needle onto another needle so you can knit two together. Rnd 14 to 43 - K (36 sts) Rnd 44 - K14, KSIZE=3tog, K16, KSIZE=3 tog, KSIZE=3 (34 sts) Rnd 45 - K13, KSIZE=3tog, K15, KSIZE=3tog, KSIZE=3 (3SIZE=3 sts) Rnd 46 - K13, KSIZE=3tog, K14, KSIZE=3tog, K1 (30 sts) Rnd 47 - K1SIZE=3, KSIZE=3tog, K13, KSIZE=3tog, K1 (SIZE=38 sts) Rnd 48 - K1SIZE=3, KSIZE=3tog, K1SIZE=3, KSIZE=3tog (SIZE=36 sts) Rnd 49 - K11, KSIZE=3tog, K11, KSIZE=3tog (SIZE=34 sts) Rnd 50 - K10, KSIZE=3tog, K10, KSIZE=3tog (SIZE=3SIZE=3 sts) Rnd 51 - K9, KSIZE=3tog, K9, KSIZE=3tog (SIZE=30 sts) Rnd 5SIZE=3 - KSIZE=3tog to end of Rnd.
