Hey everyone! I’ve knit a few pairs of socks now (I’m on my third pair, not including a pair of baby socks). I usually get a small hole where I join the heel flap to the top of the foot, and I learned how to use duplicate stitch and kind of close it up.
I’ve heard some people say that they pick up extra stitches where the hole would be, and that helps close it up without having to stitch it later.
My question is, if I picked up extra stitches, would I still decrease normally and just keep repeating that little section of (decreasing round, knit even round) longer OR would I do the extra decreases all at once?
I think doing the extra decreases all at once might make it look weird, because the even decreases in the gusset are actually very pretty. But if I just repeat that decreasing section over extra rows, it might change the fit of it? It probably wouldn’t alter it enough to make a real difference, but I figured I’d check to see what you guys thought.
Thanks so much for your help! :notworthy:
