Knitty Sweetheart Kit (Free Pattern)

A quick-knitting light-worsted sock in cheery heathered green. All the wee little cables will give you an easy way to practice cabling without cables. The afterthought heel is quick and painless to knit and smooth and comfy to wear. You simply knit in some waste yarn to hold the place for your heel, then continue working the rest of the sock as a tube. Afterwards, pick out the waste yarn and you're ready to knit your heel with simple paired decreases on both sides of your new hole. You'll avoid the gaps on either side of the waste yarn row by lifting up a stitch on either side of each row and working it together with its neighbor.

You can always work the heels before finishing the cuffs and skip the last 4 rounds to use less yarn.
