Yarn: Mini-Mochi Superwash sock yarn and hand dyed sock yarn (lighter pink)
Needles: 5 dpns size 1.5US (2.5mm)
Foot size: a dainty 7.5 (38 European)
Diamond (29stitches) measures 3" on point
Toe: In the model two yarns were used alternating two rows each.
Using a provisonal crochet cast on 29 stitches through the back of the chain loops, and make a mitered diamond, slipping first stitch of every row, knitting every row (garter stitch). On all Right side rows: Decrease over the center three stitches as follows: slip 1, k2tog, pass slipped stitch over. Continue to decrease on every right side row until three stitches remain, make the same decrease, cut yarn and fasten off.
Carefully unzip crochet chain and pick up 29 live stitches and make a mitered diamond (as above) to complete the toe, fastening off yarn after final decreases. If this is confusing see my Mitered Mittens pattern .
Stitches were increased from 29 to 33 for the diamonds pictured below because those areas of the sock need more stretch. ( I also switched to size 3 needles, for those diamonds only, to make looser stitches ). Pick up the extra stitches evenly along the edges of the previous diamonds, and return to 29 stitches on the following diamonds.
