Toe Up Machine Knit Socks for Passaps
Although the directions are written for a Passap knitting machine, you could use the math to knit these on any machine (standard gauge, 4.5-5mm) with a ribber.
Women’s US Size 6-7, 7-8, 9-10
Men’s US Size (9-10, 10-11, 12-13)
(If you are a half size I suggest going to the next size up)
Gauge is listed just to give an approximate starting point for the yarn. However gauge is not very important if you follow the stitch size used on a Passap 5mm knitting machine you will get socks pretty much the same size. Some machines do vary and you may like the fabric at 0.5 of a stitch size higher or lower.
***Materials and tools list***:
**Machine**: Double bed Knitting machine, no colour changer needed, can be done on a Passap Pinky, a Duo 80 (greenie) or an E6000.
**Tools**: Single prong transfer tool and a tool to pick up any dropped stitches (latch tool or a Jolie Unicorn)
For Cuffs which are hand knit to make the sock completely circular you’ll need US size 1 or 2
