… I’m already done with the first Mojo sock! It’s super easy, minimal concentration required, yet interesting enough to keep you on the needles. Not to mention it’s cool as hell. I think I might have to make myself some eventually.
I more or less took the Mojo idea though: Ridges and ribs. The rest? I did the ridges and ribs whenever, started from the top down, added a flap heel that drags the 2×2 rib to the bottom. The toe is ribbed, too, since this is supposed to be a sock worn mainly around the house instead of slippers. The only thing is that the toe is longer than the book said, so I’m afraid it might be too big. Though really, the ridges have a lot of ease. *crosses fingers*
What I did:
left sock design as overall idea
2×2 rib for 20 rows
starting with k, 3 ribs, end on k
2×2 for 25 rows
Heel flap 20 rows in 2×2 (seamless from leg), pick up 10+1
With joining the foot, start k of ridge on top.
Dec to 16 per needle, after dec do 3ridges in the round ending on k strip
12 rows 2×2, p 5 rows
