Small amount of DMC 80 thread (or one that gives
the same results) and size 1mm knitting needles
Leaving a small thread end cast on 19 stitches and knit
Knit 11 sts, K2 tog through the back of the loop, turn
4 sts, P 2 tog, turn
4 sts, K 2 tog tbl turn
Continue decreasing in this manner til you have 14 sts
on needles. This will be when you have finished a knit
row and you will have 4 sts on your left hand needle.
I do to stop a hole forming here is to bring the yarn
forward and then place the first stitch from the left
hand needle onto my right hand needle and then put the
yarn to the back of the work and place the stitch back
on to the left hand needle. I then turn the work and P4,
P2 tog, turn. Then I have 13 sts on the needle and I knit
to the end of the row.
work 2 rows knit and cast off loosely leaving a thread
long enough to sew up the back and foot seams. As I am
sewing up the bottom of the foot seam I oversew the thread
left when I cast on the stitches.
Makes the work look neat
