Almost done! All that's left is shaping the toe of the sock, which once again involves decreasing. As before, the stitches of the leg are needle one, the ones after that are needle two, and the final needle is needle three.

Row 1: On needle 1, knit 1, slip, slip, knit, knit to the last three stitches, knit 2 together, knit 1. Needle 2, knit 1, slip, slip, knit, and knit to the end. Needle 3, knit to the last three stitches, knit 2 together, knit 1.

Row 2: Knit straight with no decreasing.

Row 3: Repeat row 1. You will have 12 stitches remaining.

Slip the stitches from needle 2 onto needle 3 so that you have two needles with 6 stitches each.
