This has to be my smallest FO, ever!

And it’s *tiny*, really!

Weighing in at just under a gram on my dye scale, I think this is likely to be the smallest FO I’ll ever make!  But, I totally winged the pattern, guessed at how many stitches to start with, and happily, it fits like a glove — or would that be sock?  Yes, it’s a sock for an insulin vial.  You can make one too!  All you need is some scraps of sock yarn, a size 0/2mm 32″ circular needle (or set of 5 DPN’s), and about an hour (give or take, we all knit at our own pace, afterall!)

  • CO 24sts loosely (not super loose, you just don’t want this first row to be tight), join sts and begin working in the round
    • if magic looping, you’ll want 12sts on each side
    • if using DPN’s, you’ll want 6sts on each needle
  • k1 p1 for 9 rounds
  • k 18 rounds even
  • k1 k2tog around (16sts remain)
  • k 1 round even
  • k2tog around (8sts remain)
  • break yarn and run through remaining 8sts, pull tight
  • weave in ends

  2. Hello,
    Love the little vial sock! It’s too cute.
    Your color combination for your handspun yarns (form other posts) are beautiful too. Wish I had your color sense.
