Knit 2, Purl 2, or Knit 3, Purl 1??? help please :wall: :wall: :wall:
I think k2,p2 is the stretchiest.
I make k2,p1 ribbing. Just cause I like the look of it.
If it isn’t stretch enough. You can always add another set of repeats. Ditto, if you need the socks to be larger. The cuff/leg is just stretch tube. So you can pretty much use whatever you prefer, as long as it fits well.
I’ve always like K2, P2 the best, and I do think it is the stretchiest. K2, P1 is a tad tighter, according to my daughter.
Are you having a problem with this? If whatever ribbing you choose is too small or not stretchy enough, how about using a size larger needle to the ribbing then go back to the smaller needle for the sock itself?
