Bella Cash Socktober Mystery Knitalong – Week 5

Welcome to Week 5 of the Bella Cash Socktober Mystery Knitalong! You’ve nearly made it to the finish line! We have continued to enjoy seeing peeks at your Sweet Dumplin’ Socks progress, and we can’t wait to see more!
Use this graphic on Ravelry and on social media to share about the knitalong.
Just like my last post, I want to give a refresher about the knitalong for those who might be joining in late. Don’t worry – if you haven’t started, newcomers are more than welcome. To play a little catch-up, here is where you can find my previous blog posts:

Week 1 – Colors

Week 2 – The Cuff

Week 3 – The Leg

Week 4 – The Foot

Each week in October I’ll be revealing a different portion of the pattern. The pattern is updated on our website every Wednesday and you can find it here (link). Grab your colors of beautiful merino/cashmere/nylon Bella Cash here (link).

This is a mystery knitalong, but if you don’t want to commit without seeing the socks first you can find spoiler images here (link).

If you join, we’d love for you to spread the love and share your progress on social media using the hashtag #UYSocktoberMKAL and tagging us on Instagram (link) and Facebook (link). Join in with chatter here on the blog and in our Ravelry forum (link).

Please add your project to Ravelry, too! You can find the Ravelry listing here (link). You can use the graphic above and on the Ravelry listing for your project page, too.
Detail of the Foot pattern of the Sweet Dumplin’ Socks.
Last week you worked on knitting the foot, which features fun twisted stitches and is full of texture. I hope you enjoyed it! This week you’ll be reintroducing color to your socks. A nice touch on the toe and a good pop in the heel. You’re in the final stretch and are finally going to be able to cozy up in your brand new socks!

This week you’ll indulge in two techniques that we already have tutorials for. First, you’ll finish the toes by grafting using Kitchener stitch. You can find a helpful tutorial on how to work this stitch here (link). After you finish your toes, you’ll need to pick up stitches from the waste yarn you placed last week to create the heel. We shared a photo-tutorial for working afterthought heels here (link).
So are you ready to get started? The next portion of the pattern is now available for your knitting pleasure! Next week I’ll share our progress at the office as well as some photos of the socks you’ve shared. I can’t wait because there are some really beautiful versions of these socks being created!

Remember, you can share your progress on social media using the hashtag #UYSocktoberMKAL and tagging us on Instagram (link) and Facebook (link). Join in with chatter here on the blog and in our Ravelry forum (link).

Happy knitting – I’ll see you next week!
