On my Dutch site this page offers all kinds of cloth diaper patterns and materials. As the patterns are Dutch only. It makes little sense to translate this part. That's why I decided to offer you some free SITA knitting patterns in English here.
These patterns may be knit up for personal use, as a gift or for charity (but in case you knit it for charity, please LMK and mention Storm in the Attic). They may NOT be copied in any way, printed or knit up for sale. May bad karma haunt you if you do.
Enjoy the patterns!
elf sock pattern
my favorite babysocks and booties are very easy to make using any standard circ. knit sock-pattern. Felted or not, tiny or huge, this toe will make any sock look elvish.
pictured above, roll top socks with short row heel and elf sock toes.
Simply adjust any sockpattern at the toes using these instructions:
divide the number of stitches on your needles equally in 2 where you would usually start your toe decrease. You will be working with a bottom half and an upper half from now on. Markers between each half will help you keep count.
I find that putting them on 4 dpns is easier than working with 2 circs.
This pattern works for any yarn, any gauge and any size as long as there is an even number of stitches (preferably dividable by 4) remaining on the needle just before the toe decrease.
The basic trick is to make the bottom half much longer than the top half, thereby making the toe curl while decreasing into a point. Short rows are used to achieve this effect.
Using any number of stitches devided equally between the 2 halves:
Knit to end of the bottom half.
Wrap and turn, purl to end of bottom half,
wrap and turn, knit to end of bottom half.
*K2tog (first 2 stitches of top half), knit to last2 stitches, SSK
K2tog (first 2 stitches of bottom half), knit to last 2 stitches, SSK, wrap and turn.
Purl all remaining stitches of bottom half, wrap and turn.
Knit to end.of bottom half*
Repeat between * and * until there are 6 or less stitches remaining. Knit together all remaining stitches and weave in the end.
