STEP 7: Foot
Knit all rounds, trying the sock on from time to time, until the sock reaches the point on your foot where the leg meets the top of the foot. (Or until the sock measures the length determined by Measurement 3 or Chart 2.)
If you want a decorative stitch pattern on the top of the foot, knit 3 rounds and then start the new stitch pattern. Knit the decorative pattern across the stitches on Needle 2 only. And remember that you must swatch for gauge in your chosen stitch pattern to calculate your primary stitch count.
STEP 8: Gusset
Round 2: Knit all.
Repeat these two rounds _____ times (Chart 1, Row C) altogether until…
There are more stitches on Needle 1 than Needle 2 now.
