I have not knitted anything for quite some time, and the only sock experience I have is with a UFO in sock weight and a pair of worsted weight regular ones.
There is a man I know that I would really like to knit a pair of socks for… but he is a really big guy (6’7") and nothing ever fits him… I want to make sure the socks will fit!
However, they are to be a surprise and I don’t want to measure him or anything…
is it going to be possible to knit a pair of socks that will have a chance in heck of fitting him? And if so, do I need a special pattern for big feet/guys or something?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I should have started with a hat but I’m not sure he would wear a knitted hat… whereas EVERYONE wears socks.
