Nearly there! All you need to do now is close up the toe so you can wear your first ever socks. The neatest way to do this is a little tricky, but it is worth the trouble. If you can’t manage it this time, don’t worry. You can simply sew the toe together if you like.

It’s really difficult to explain this stitch without a video, so go have a look at Purl Soho’s video tutorial to help you visualise what you need to do:

And you’re done! Wear your socks with pride. 

Thank you for taking part in the #knittinghour sock KAL.
