Using waste yarn and preferred method of provisional cast on, CO 30 (32, 34, 36, 38) sts [for size S (M, L, XL, XXL)] in main yarn using US 1 (2.25mm) dpns/circs or size to obtain gauge.

Knit short row toe in stocking stitch using methods described in Special Stitches and as follows:
Row 1: K to last st (unwrapped), w&t.
Row 2: P to last st (unwrapped), w&t.

Repeat rows 1 and 2, knitting to the last st in the row that is unwrapped, and wrapping it and turning. [Editor's note for those new to w&t: Cat Bhordi explains why you don't really need to count once you know what a wrapped stitch looks like pretty well in this video so that you can just "knit to the last unwrapped stitch" and go on.]

Continue until 10 (10, 11, 12, 12) sts are wrapped on each side of toe, and 10 (12, 12, 12, 14) are left unwrapped in the centre of the toe.

Next, following instructions, pick up wraps as follows:
Row 1: K to first st wrapped, PU wrap and k tog with st, w&t.
Row 2: P to first st wrapped, PU wrap and k tog with st, w&t.

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until all wrapped stitches have been picked up and knitted.
