I’m knitting this pattern for ankle socks : Allison’s Ankle Socks.
It is a really good pattern and I’m having fun learning about the yarn over short rows! So far, tons easier for me than the Wrap & Turn short rows.
ANYhow… my question is this. I’m using size 2 needles instead of the ones called for in the pattern, plus I have big feet and stuff so I cast on 72 stitches instead of 54.
So, I have started on the short rows for the heel… the pattern says to continue doing the short rows until there are 8 stitches without yarnovers.
Since I’m using a ton more stitches, will I work the short rows until there are 8 stitches + the number of stitches I added (18 I think)? Or, will I keep working the short rows until there are 8 stitches?
And, what difference would it make?
TIA for any advice. These ankle socks are my first foray into adult socks (I made one baby sock and that was it), they are a pretty quick knit so far and will be really cute. I hate going without socks, but regular socks with capri style jeans just doesn’t cut it. :shock:
