slipper socks

YOU WILL NEED:

Blue 24-peg KK loom
Pick and darning needle
150 - 250 grams of bulky yarn

CUFF: For above socks, e-wrap 10 rows, then make a hat brim as shown in the KK instructions. Ribbing is also a nice cuff that fits more snugly around the ankle, especially when a longer leg portion is desired.
ANKLE: E-wrap 5 rows (as above) or more rows if you like longer socks.

HEEL FLAP: Make 4 short rows, by e-wrapping pegs 1 thru 12 back and forth, using the 1st & 12th pegs as turning pegs (do not wrap a second loop on those pegs when they are the first peg to wrap in a row), just like in the KK booklet for flat panels.

TURN HEEL: Your free yarn should be at peg 1. Now take the loop on peg 12, and place it on peg 11. These will count as 1 loop. Now e-wrap your yarn to peg 11, and knit those pegs as usual.

With free yarn now at peg 11, take the loop on peg 1 and place it on peg 2. These will count as 1 loop. Now e-wrap your yarn to peg 2, and knit them as usual.

With free yarn now at peg 2, take the loop on peg 11 and place it on peg 10. These will count as 1 loop. Now e-wrap your yarn to peg 10, and knit them as usual.


With free yarn now at peg 10, take the loop on peg 2 and place it on peg 3. These will count as 1 loop. Now e-wrap your yarn to peg 3, and knit them as usual.

With free yarn now at peg 3, take the loop on peg 10 and place it on peg 9. These will count as 1 loop. Now e-wrap your yarn to peg 9, and knit them as usual.

With free yarn now at peg 9, take the loop on peg 3 and place it on peg 4. These will count as 1 loop. Now e-wrap your yarn to peg 4, and knit them as usual.

You will have 3 open pegs on each side of your heel. Reach inside the loom, and evenly distribute the stitches along the edge of the heel, placing them onto the empty pegs, including 1 peg on either side of the empty pegs 4, 9, 13, and 24 which will now have 2 loops to knit off as 1 loop.

Peg 4 is now the beginning peg. You can return using peg 1 as your beginning peg, if you like, by simply knitting your first round to peg 1 only, then continue knitting in the round until you reach your desired foot length.

Remove by sewing yarn through each peg's loop, and draw up tightly and tie.
