Knit your own Thong Socks using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
Split toe socks that you can wear with thong sandals, or just because! Thong Socks have a split between the large toe and the rest of the sock, and are often referred to as tabi socks after the sewn version used in Japan.
Includes distinct shaping for right and left feet, with separate big toe. The resilient slipped stitch 3,2 cuff ribbing extends down foot, then completely around the instep and arch, to make these socks extra form-fitting and comfy.
Adult medium. 300 yards fingering weight yarn, 8 stitches/inch, size US 1 / 2.5 mm needles suggested. Shown in Brown Sheep Wildefoot color Brilliant Bouquet. Written stitch instructions.
