Directions are given for the asymmetric toes shown, as well as a traditional symmetrical toe. Lumineux features a simple but impactful textured pattern that’s almost as easy to work as ribbing and which doesn’t fight with speckled yarns. The toes and heel work equally well on a vanilla sock, so directions are included for working the whole sock in stockinette.
Sock yarn in 2 colours. 270[305, 345]yds / 245[280, 315]m of MC 70[80, 95]yds / 65[75, 85]m of CC
US 2 / 2.25mm dpns or circulars for preferred method of working small circumferences in the round.
I prefer to work the afterthought heels before completing the toe because it’s easier to correctly judge the length of the foot once the heel is added. This is easiest if you have a second set of needles.
32 stitches and 50 rows = 4 inches in st st in the round
