A new technique for the new year

A new technique for the new year

I hadn’t gone out of my way to learn a new knitting technique; I just happened upon one!

This is the Bosnian Toe from the Crystal Socks pattern that I’m using for the Advent Socks.

SYSA WIP toe start
You start with a stocking stitch tab (similar to the garter tab start in some shawls), pick up stitches around that, and then work in the round.

I chose to do a temporary cast on using the cable of a circular needle as my “waste yarn” (the bottom cable in the photo above). This way I only have to pick stitches up along the sides.

And this is the finished toe:
