I 'd like to share the pattern that I recently came across.
The original design belongs to Victoria Zmeyka, I contacted her and asked her permission to translate it in English. So thank you To Victoria.

I used 100% acrylic Red Heart Baby Soft yarn for this pair and 3mm double pointed needles.
Cast on 32 stitches and knit according to the chart for the heel flap.
Horizontal line - purl
vertical line-knit
1 row: Slip 1, *K2, P2* 7 times, K2 and you can either K or P last stitch (I prefer to P last stitch for a nice even edge).
2 row: Slip 1, K P2 , *K2, P2* 5 times, K 4, P last stitch.
3 row: Slip 1, K2, P2, * slip 1 to cable needle hold in back, K1, k1 from cable needle, P2* 6 times K2, P last stitch.
4 row: as 2nd row.
Knit for 22 rows.
Turning the heel.
I usually have about 1/3 of my stitches for the heel (10 for this particular pair).
(Right side) Slip 1, K 19 (half of your stitches on the needle +4), K next 2 together,place a marker, turn.
(Wrong side) Slip 1, P 8, P 9th and 10th together, place a marker, turn.
Now you have 2 turning points, K on the right side and purl on the wrong side last stitch before marker and first stitch after marker together.
Repeat those 2 rows until all stitches have been worked. You'll have 10 stitches on the needle. Pick up 11 stitches on the side of the heel, cast on 13 stitches for the middle and pick up another 11 stitches on another side of the heel. Knit in the round.
Use chart 2 for 13 stitches in the middle.
Horizontal line - purl
vertical line-knit
big black dot- bobble
1 row: P 2, K9, P 2. Knit in the round.
2 row: as 1st row.
3 row: P2, slip 2 to cable needle hold in back, K 2 then K 2 from the cable needle. K 1. Slip 2 to cable needle hold in front, K2, then K 2 from the cable needle. P 2. Knit in the round.
4 row: as 1st row
5 row: P2, K4, Knit a bobble on next stitch (I crochet bobble stitch with 3mm crochet hook), K 4, P2. Knit in the round.
6 row: as 1st row.
7 row: P2, K3, Bobble, K 1, Bobble, K 3, P2. Knit in the round.
8 row: as 1st row.

Repeat this pattern 4 times for US size 7.
Work the toe decrease.

If you want to add a bobble cuff ( i don't have it on my picture). Pick up 45 stitches around the top and join in the round. Knit 3 rows in *1k , 2p * pattern. Row 4 -Knit a bobble from each K stitch and purl 2 stitches between bobbles. Cast off.

I also would like to invite all of you to play a 2014 socks game if you're interested.

"Joke" is the name of the sock; the "game" is outlined in her link here:

Sounds like a nice idea.

I think "Joke" is the name of the pattern. If I understand correctly, the game is explained in the link. We are invited to knit 12 pairs of socks this year and share the experience with others on KP.

I often play games with my Russian knitting friends- something like KAL. One person post the pattern either own or free from the internet and all participants knit this project together. Post the picture of your finished project once you are finished. Next month next person posts new pattern. The purpose of the game is to learn something new, new knitting technique or a pattern and have fun.

Joke is the name of this pattern.

So, basically, this is like jumping into the deep end of the pool?

I'm SOOOO comfortable knitting the "sockit2me" cuff down socks -- I almost have the pattern memorized -- and this "game" will take me OUT of my comfort zone, and I'll have to try other patterns (including <gulp> the toe up version????)

Hmmmm.....I just don't know if I'm ready for this yet. YOU ALL jump into that deep end, and if nobody drowns, maybe I'll try it next time?!?

I love this sock; thanks. I have a SIL who has a birthday next week--these will be perfect.

I like the pattern, but I can't see ever wearing anything covered with so much texture inside any shoe, not even inside my very roomy Crocs. I think I'll file this one as a slipper, not a sock.

Your post is very interesting, Lena. I like the socks and would love to play your game but don't have time to play right now. I, too, would love to play later - if that's going to be possible.

And... I would like to know whether you can translate crochet instructions. I've seen some shown in Russian that I really admire.

Thanks for your pattern, too.

saved pattern may be my next Christmas present for my girls or guys in right color

There are 2 symbols that are not translated to English, the ones that look like stair steps to left and right. What do they mean? And how do you make a bobble? Thanks. And I love these slippers - so cute!

Hi Lena, I did not see the directions for the toe decrease. Looking at the picture, it looks like the method I use instead of Kitchener stitch. This method is nicer and fits better. Ann
