Porifera Socks - T&K 030

These socks are fun and easy to work in any gauge. The lozenge pattern at the cuff and toe of these socks reminds me of the multichambered cross section of sea sponges, which have the genus name Porifera.

Porifera Socks - T&K 016

Gauge: Pattern gives gauge options for 5, 5.5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 9.5 stitches per inch. Sample shown is 18 stitches and 28 rows per 2 inches (5 cm) square in stockinette.
Finished Measurements: Pattern gives cast on numbers for circumferences ranging from 7-11 inches. Sample shown is knit with 64 sts to fit a woman’s size 9. Circumference around upper cuff is 14 inches (36 cm).
Yarn Requirements: Sample worked with 400 yards of sock weight yarn. Since gauge is variable for this pattern, so is yarn weight.
Needle Size: Sample worked with set of five 2.5 mm (US 1.5) double pointed needles, or size needed to obtain gauge.
Pattern Includes: charts and text translations of charts
Stitches Used: knit, purl, k2tog, ssk, yo, yo2, picking up stitches, m1, yf, yb, wrap & turn short rows.
Other Details: These socks are knit from the toe up. The toe is starts with a provisional cast-on, followed by 6 rows of stockinette to make a little flap. You will pick up stitches around the flap (including the provisional cast on) and begin work in the round. The number of stitches you will need can be determined by referring to the foot circumference you would like to knit for in the Stitch Table. Negative ease (the stretch that keeps the sock on) is built in to these numbers. Try using different needle sizes to adjust your gauge to match the correct foot circumference. If your foot circumference falls between two given sizes, choose the smaller one, or use a smaller needle to tighten your gauge.

    […] Some patterns in this book require that you split your yarn in half. For some items (such as the Porifera socks or Gable Mitts), you can work from both ends of a center pull ball at once. But for a piece like […]
