I’ve knit several pairs of socks, on dpn’s, so I do have some sock knitting experience. However, I just knit one sock that I’m very disappointed in and there are no plans for it to get a mate.
The pattern called for dk weight yarn on size 4 needles. I bought Berroco Comfort DK, which is an acrylic blend. This is the worst sock I’ve ever done. The stitches look awful and the sock doesn’t feel right when I put it on - it doesn’t ‘hug’ the foot like it should. I tried to block it, but it didn’t help.
It certainly could be my knitting, but I have a feeling that at least part of the problem is the yarn. I’ve never knit socks in an acrylic before; I’ve always used a wool blend.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
