Jinglebell socks

Here is Joulusukat -pattern in english. This was first published in Ulla Christmas-extra 2005.

Christmas demands decoration and jingles, so why not in socks, too.

Yarn: Novita Nalle in dark red, sold in 150 grams skeins, but you need about 100 grams which is about 260 metres
Needles: 2,5 mm for ribbing, 3.0 mm for everything else
Gauge: 23 stitches and 34 rows stockinette = 10 cm

Size: Female, foot about 23,5 cm long

Other equipment: Ten small jingles

CO 70 stitches loosely to thicker needles and join into round. Do not twist. Knit chart (5 repeats). Knit three rows stockinette stitch. On the last row, decrease evenly 14 sts (=56 sts). Turn wrong side out and change to smaller needles. Knit rib *K2, p2* for 28 rows. Change to bigger needles and knit stockinette for four rows.

Heel Flap:
Make heel with needles #1 and #4 (=28 sts). Knit stockinette with 14 sts on needle #1. Turn.
Row1: Slip 1, purl to end
Row2: Slip 1, knit to end
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have 30 rows.
Turn heel:
Row1: Slip 1, knit 17 sts, p2tog. Turn.
Row2: Slip 1, knit 8 sts, ssk. Turn
Row3: Slip 1, purl 8 sts, p2tog. Turn.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until all heel stitches are worked (10 sts left).
Heel Gussets:
Pick up and knit 15 chain sts along right side of heel flap. Work 28 instep sts stockinette. Pick up and knit 15 chain sts along left side of heel flap. There are 14 sts on needles #2 and #3 and 20 sts on needles #1 and #4 (=68 sts).
DecRow: Work to 2 sts from end of needle #1, k2tog. Work instep. On needle #4, ssk and work to end.
Work DecRow, one row with no decreases, DecRow, two rows with no decreases etc. Work like this (increasing amount of rows between DecRows) until there are 14 sts on every needle (=56 sts).

Knit until sock reaches tip of your little toe. (In my sock this was about 27 rows after gusset decrease.) *K4, k2tog*, repeat *-*, k2. Knit 4 rows. *K3, k2tog*, repeat *-*, k2. Knit 3 rows. *K2, k2tog*, repeat *-*, k2. Knit 2 rows. *K1, k2tog*, repeat *-*, k2. Knit 1 row. *K2tog for end of row. Break yarn, pull yarn through the sts and fasten off.

Weave in all ends. Block, especially leg needs it. Attach jingles to socks.
