Nalbinding Socks … free crochet sock pattern

I bought the book by Larry Schmidt called Lots of Socks  I love the book, but when I decided to make my DH a pair of nalbound sleep socks, I wanted one that stretches a bit like the knit soft socks.. (He has diabetes and needs to really watch his feet) .  What I finally chose to do was this… nalbind the sock using my favorite crocheted sock pattern found at Grafton Fibershere

I used a stitch that I think is the Korgen stitch, but I am not quite sure about that.  Around the ankle, it will be finished off with several rows of the Tarim/knit stitch. 

I was surprised that this pattern would work so well with nalbinding.  I used my hand spun, kool aid dyed merino yarn that I finished a while back.  This sock is very soft and feels very good  against the skin…yum 

I will add here that he loves the feel of this sock… but is not quite as happy about the pink color!  ;o)  Looks like I may have to add a little dye to the water when I finish them off…
