Shape Toe Star Toe Shaping

This toe shaping is achieved by knitting 2 stitches together 4 times evenly around. It results in a nice round toe that requires no extra finishing.

Note: You can reinforce the toe by carrying along with your yarn a strand of polyester sewing thread. O place a split-ring marker halfway across the stitches on needle #2, dividing them in half.

2 Rnd 1: K to last 2 sts on needle #1, k2tog; k to last 2 sts before marker on needle #2, k2tog; k to last 2 sts on needle #2, k2tog; k to last 2 sts on needle #3, k2tog. You have now decreased 4 sts.

4 Rep rnds 1 and 2 until you have rem the number of sts specified for your size and gauge in Table 11.

5 Rep rnd 1 every rnd until 8 sts rem.

6 Cut yarn, leaving an 8-inch tail. Thread tail through rem sts and tighten.

Note: For a longer toe, work more non-decrease rnds between dec rnds. For a shorter toe, beg working dec rnd every rnd earlier than specified above.
