Hi Guys, I’m Kristen and Welcome to STUDIO
KNIT. It’s a New Year. This is a great time

3
00:00:10,850 –> 00:00:17,070
to focus on our fitness, well-being, balance,
and where else is better to start than with

4
00:00:17,070 –> 00:00:23,710
YOGA?!?! I thought that these YOGA SOCKS would
be a really fun quick knit to start the new

5
00:00:23,710 –> 00:00:31,109
year. They’re cozy, they’re very, very simple
to make, and they’re a great gift to yourself

6
00:00:31,109 –> 00:00:38,320
or your friends. This time of year it’s often
still quite chilly, so these yoga socks, they

7
00:00:38,320 –> 00:00:45,310
leave your toes and your heels free to grip
onto your yoga mat, but they leave the rest

8
00:00:45,310 –> 00:00:52,160
of your foot, ankle, and as far up your leg
as you’d like nice and cozy warm.

9
00:00:52,160 –> 00:00:59,750
For our MATERIALS, we will use Knitting Needles
Size 7US, Aran or Worsted Weighted Yarn and

10
00:00:59,750 –> 00:01:08,210
your color choice is totally optional. Scissors,
and a Tapestry Needle.

11
00:01:08,210 –> 00:01:15,179
To begin, we make our beloved slip knot and
then using the long tail cast on method, cast

12
00:01:15,179 –> 00:01:21,890
on your stitches. I have size recommendations,
along with the written pattern, in the description

13
00:01:21,890 –> 00:01:32,149
below. And for the size that I’m making, I
am casting on 40 stitches in this example.

14
00:01:32,149 –> 00:01:39,399
We begin by knitting in the 1×1 rib stitch
pattern, this is just Knit One and Purl One

15
00:01:39,399 –> 00:01:46,560
all the way down your row and we’re doing
this pattern for the first 6 rows making up

16
00:01:46,560 –> 00:01:56,850
the bottom of our yoga sock. For Rows 7 through
16, simply knit your rows in stockinette stitch,

17
00:01:56,850 –> 00:02:06,499
this is the knit stitch on the right side
and the purl stitch on the wrong side of your

18
00:02:06,499 –> 00:02:09,128
work.

19
00:02:09,128 –> 00:02:20,569
And if you would like to change colors, you
can do so at any time to make really fun stripes.

20
00:02:20,569 –> 00:02:27,110
And, one pro tip is, if you are going to get
a little creative as you go along, keep a

21
00:02:27,110 –> 00:02:34,760
written log of your stitches and when you’re
switching colorsso your second sock can easily

22
00:02:34,760 –> 00:02:35,900
match.

23
00:02:35,900 –> 00:02:44,200
It’s time to make the opening for our heel.
So we are going to Bind Off half the stitches

24
00:02:44,200 –> 00:02:50,370
on our needle. Since I have 40 stitches, I’m
going to bind off the first 20 stitches right

25
00:02:50,370 –> 00:03:04,769
here. Then continue knitting the remainder
of the row. Now purl those stitches on the

26
00:03:04,769 –> 00:03:13,430
wrong side. We’re going to cast on those 20
stitches that we lost using the cable cast-on

27
00:03:13,430 –> 00:03:19,299
method. I’ll show you a little bit here, but
I also have a great video on how to do the

28
00:03:19,299 –> 00:03:40,780
cable cast on and the link in the description
below and in the card annotation above.

29
00:03:40,780 –> 00:03:47,209
Now we just finish up with the stockinette
stitch until your sock is the height you desire.

30
00:03:47,209 –> 00:03:57,140
I knitted mine for rows 19 through 46, but
you can keep going higher up if you’d like.

31
00:03:57,140 –> 00:04:02,599
And when you’re ready to finish up, it’s
just another 6 rows of that 1×1 rib stitch

32
00:04:02,599 –> 00:04:32,220
pattern that we started off with, and then
bind off.

33
00:04:32,220 –> 00:04:53,840
We just seam up our edge and you are DONE!

34
00:04:53,840 –> 00:04:59,910

fun quick knit projects that are perfect for

the new year, including this calendar, this
is also a great time of year to declutter,

36
00:05:05,080 –> 00:05:10,490
especially with our yarn stash. So, go check
out my playlist on organization, I have some

37

yarn organized so that you can find it any

38
00:05:17,760 –> 00:05:21,479
color or type of yarn that you’re looking
for.

39
00:05:21,479 –> 00:00:00,000
Bye!
