I started these socks last summer, finished the one sometime in the fall and decided to finish up the other one last week. It only took me a week to get it done............why do I wait?
The pattern for the Horseshoe is as follows:
Cast on 60, rip on the band
This is in multiples of 12
Row 1: yo, k3, sl 1, k2 tog, psso, k3, yo, k1
Row 2: and all alt rows, purl
Row 3: k1, yo, k2, sl 1, k2 tog, psso, k2, yo, k2
Row 5: k2, yo, k1, sl 1, k2 tog, psso, k1, yo, k3
Row 7: k3, yo, sl 1, k2 tog, psso, yo, k4
Every row is basically the same except for the beginning and end of the pattern. It doesn't take long to get it figured out.
I haven't made that many socks, but I'm amazed that I still have all the pairs I have knitted in the last few years, and I wear them a lot, but they haven't worn out. It's so worth the time and effort.
