Minitomus


Minitomus anklets are done!

  • On Ravelry: Minitomus

  • Pattern: Pomatomus by Cookie A from Knitty, Winter 2005

  • Yarn: 172 m/188 yd of Novita Nalle Colori (75% wool / 25% polyamide), colorway #813 (aqua/light blue/denim)

  • Needles: 3.5 mm 80 cm aluminum circular needle

  • Other: Summer of Socks 2007 pair #5, Sockdown: Ravelry August 2007 challenge (Sockbug or lace) pair #2


Mods:

  • Toe-up, ankle length.

  • Revisited Widdershins heel in the k2tog tbl, p1 stitch pattern that was in the original pattern.

  • The biggest mod is that I used sport/DK weight yarn so I had to downsize the pattern. In the instep, I had one less horizontal pattern repeat plus 1 st on each side (= 26 sts). 26 sts also on the sole so 52 sts in total.

  • Decreased the extra 4 stitches after the heel so that I had 4 pattern repeats horizontally (= 48 sts).

  • Continued in k2tog tbl, p1 ribbing on the heel needle until I reached row #1 in the stitch pattern.

  • Made a cuff of one full pattern repeat, finished off with an applied I-cord edging.
