|The sock's big toe. At this point it looks like a normal toe up sock.|
|The mid-toe. This section is increasing only on one side in preparation for knitting on the diagonal.|
|The foot. This section is knit on the diagonal, maintaining a constant width.|
|The inner ankle. Extra increases are inserted on one side of the sock. At this point there are 84 stitches with 12 stitches between the newly placed ankle markers.|
|The mini gusset. Additional stitches are added for the gusset. At this point their are 102 stitches on the needles.|
|The right heel. At this point we are maintaining the 15 heel stitches. The sock is looking pretty bizarre at this point.|
|The right heel after kitchener and magic happens. Suddenly we have a heel and a sock foot that can be tried on.|
|The gusset decrease. This section decreases the stitches increased in the previous mini-gusset section. I made some modifications here to increase the size of the leg. I also added a couple of extre repeats to increase the leg length.|
|The short row leg. Short rows are knitted back and forth to level out the leg in preparation for the cuff.|
|The finished socks.|
My Skew Sock can be found at Amaranth Skew.
This sock is a wonderful use for those highly variegated yarns that we all stash, but don't know how to use them. So take a stash dive for an appropriate skein and start your Skew.
