Wedge toe pattern for cuff down socks

Wedge toe is probably one of the most commonly used toe shapes I’ve seen on sock patterns. It is very easy to remember and the math is not too complex either. Based on your stitch count you need to first calculate how many rows finishing the decreases will take and then combine that number with your row gauge and you’ll get exactly when to start shaping the toe.

I have saved you some trouble and I made a calculator which tells you exactly when to start decreasing for the toe. Just enter your stitch count and gauge and this calculator will tell you when to start shaping the toe of your socks. The pattern works for any yarn and gauge and it is written for the magic loop method, but can be adjusted for double pointed needles as well. If you prefer rounded toe over wide toe see this pattern.

 sts on my needles  rows / 4” (10cm).

You should now have a total of 56 sts divided evenly on two needles (28 sts per needle).


Begin the toe shaping when the length of the foot is 2.0’’ (5.0cm) less than the desired length.

Needle 1: k1, ssk, k to 3 sts from end, k2tog, k1

Needle 2: Work the same way as Needle 1.

Decrease a total of 9 times every other round. A total of 16 sts remaining.

Break the yarn leaving approximately 12’’ inc (30cm) tail. Graft the toe..


k = knit

k2tog = knit 2 stitches together

ssk = slip 1 stitch knitwise, slip another stitch knitwise, then slide the left-hand needle into the front part of both stitches and knit them together.
