February Socks

February is a short month. I’ve decided to knit a sock with chunky yarn and a short leg!

The yarn I’m using is Yoshie (it was left over from my hot water bottle cover). TheĀ  image above is the tension square. My gauge was 4 stitches/inch.

I’ve calculated that I need to cast on 32 stitches – it worked out at 34, but it is always better to have a number divisible by 4.

To calculate the number of stitches I measured the circumference of my leg (just above my ankle), subtracted half an inch (because I want my socks to fit snugly) and multiplied by the gauge.
