My mother hates wearing socks.  She wears footlets all the time.  She also won't wear wool (too scratchy for her).  So.....I discovered a vintage footlet pattern online and knitted it up using cotton stripey sock yarn.

Here's my version:



I'm having a bit of second sock syndrome....but I will get to it soon.

It was a very quick knit.

Here's the pattern if you're interested.

Thanks for looking!

There was at least one typo in the pattern....but it was very obvious!

In the tenth row of the heel turn, the pattern reads K 1, it should read K 11.

That is a nice footlet. My Oma might like something like that. Me - I prefer nice warm socks or nothing at all.

I've got knitting needles, and I'm not afraid to use them.

The yarn I used was Lana Grossa's Meilenweit Cotton Fantasy.  It is 45% cotton, 42% virgin wool and 13% Polyamid.

It feels soft like cotton, she'll never know there's wool in it  Wink

That is really cute!  Stripey yarn is awesome.

I need something to wear around the house and such, but I'm not really a big sock-wearer, so I'll have to try that pattern out.  Thanks for posting it!

i love that!!!!  i love making socks, but the anticipation kills me when i have to do that long ankle.  and i have a weird behavior where i somehow spin my socks around on my feet.  so the heal suddenly sits on top of my foot.  drove my roomates nuts.  so maybe with these it wouldn't happen

Thanks for all the compliments!

The pattern is written to be knit flat and then you seam up the top of the foot (odd).

When you get to the part where the top of the footlet would meet (this will make sense
when you read the pattern), I used 5 dpns and finished them up in the round to avoid
having a seam up the top of the foot.  I just finished the toe like I would any other sock
and kitchenered the toe.
