Anyone got a sock toe decrease pattern they'd be willing to email (or comment) to me? I'm AT that point on this sock, and left the frelling pattern at home (basic sock pattern by Ann Budd's Book of Handy Patterns for Knitters or whatever the hell it's called). I'm decreasing from 72 stitches, and IIRC it's:

(round starts in middle of sole)
Round 1: K to within 3 sts of instep, K2tog, K1, sm, K1, SSK, work instep to within 3 sts of sole, K2tog, K1, sm, K1, SSK, K to end of round
Round 2: work in pattern
Repeat until sts have been decreased by X amount, then decrease every round until Y sts remain. Graft. Do happy finished sock dance.

Anyone? because otherwise I'll have to a) not knit on my lunch hour or b) go to the yarn store where I will likely SPEND MONEY.

Hullo lovey

Shape Toe
Beginning with Needle 1 and MC:
Rnd 1: *K7, k2tog*.
Rnd 2 and all even rounds: Knit around.
Rnd 3: *K6, k2tog*.
Rnd 5: *K5, k2tog*.
Rnd 7: *K4, k2tog*.
Rnd 9: *K3, k2tog*.
Rnd 11: *K2, k2tog*.
Rnd 13: *K1, k2tog*.
Rnd 15: *k2tog*.
Rnd 16: Knit.
6 stitches remain.

Repeat these two rounds until there are 6 sts remaining.
Cut yarn leaving 12-inch tail.
With a darning needle thread yarn through remaining sts and pull snug.
Weave ends.

from, which is colorwork sock, but is top-down, 72-stitch sock, and thus formula should work. :) LOVEJOO.

Nother one.

That's a basic pattern with less circular toe decreases. :)
