There are several different types of toes you can do on a sock with dpns… Most patterns usually call for what’s already been posted by comradeaustin - that makes kind of a triangle-y toe. Another easy method results in a more rounded toe - you decrease a stitch 1/4 of the way around every other row (i.e. divide total stitches by 4 and decrease) - until you’re down to about 8-16 stitches and pull them altogether to finish off. The decrease line forms a 4-pointed star when you’re done. A really fancy-schmancy system uses decrease one-stitch wrap-and-turn/short-rows on 1/2 of the stitches (I usually pick the ‘bottom’) until you have about 12-14 ‘live’ stitches and then start increasing/picking up the side stitches until it meets up with the top-of-foot stitches - then join them all together with a kitchener stitch - making an invisible seam. Very elegant - but again more triangle-y. There are tones of tutorials - google ‘finishing socks, toes’ for ideas. Have fun!
My fellow knitters. How do you decrease for the toe of a sock on dpn’s? Thank you
