Free miniature knitting pattern - socks for Pukifee or Lati Yellow

I wrote up this pattern a while ago, while I was experimenting to see whether I could knit socks for my Pukifee Felicity using DPNs. It's a bit like wrestling with a porcupine but perfectly possible! The pattern is based on a fairly standard sock pattern, just with very few stitches. Give it a go, it's not as hard as it sounds!

Socks for Pukifee or Lati Yellow

I used 2mm double-pointed needles and lace-weight/2-ply yarn. Worked top-down in the round.

Cast on 14 and join to work in the round.
Work 3 rounds k1, p1 rib.
Knit 5 rounds.

Put 7 sts onto one needle and the other 7 sts onto a safety pin for safe-keeping.
Working just the sts left on the needle:
1: sl1, k6
2: sl2, p6
Repeat rows 1 & 2 twice more.
7: sl1, k3, ssk, turn
8: p2, p2tog, turn
9: k2, ssk, turn
10: p2, p2tog

K3, pick up and knit 5 sts down side of heel flap, place marker. Knit sts from safety pin. Place marker. Pick up and knit 5 sts down other side of heel flap.
Next round: k to 2st from 1st marker, k2tog, knit to 2nd marker, ssk
Repeat this round twice more.

Knit 5 rounds.
Next round: k2tog round. Break yarn and draw through sts on needle, pull tight and weave in end.

This pattern has been previously posted on Den of Angels and on my beepbeep designs miniatures site.
