I am knitting Baudelaire, they’re toe-up, ending with an inch of ribbing. I haven’t done socks before and also haven’t yet acquired the ability to look at a ball of wool and know its parameters. I’m still hoping…
They’re in Rowan 4-ply Soft (thank God I used a wool you guys will know!). Has anyone got an inch of ribbing knitted up in this? I wish… Failing that, a guess re. meterage or weight. No matter how much of a guess it is for you, it’s helpful because I really haven’t the foggiest. I promise to take estimates with a grain of salt. Does anyone have a leftover from a ball of similar weight that they think is equivalent to enough for x inches of ribbing? They’re knitted at 8spi.
If anyone can point me in the right direction - say you think it will take about 3 grams - then I’ll weigh my balls (giggle) and know to start ribbing when I have that much left (I’ll be safe and go with a bit more, like 4).
If I guess, I’ll have to err on the safe side, which will mean I won’t get the most of this gorgeous pattern! Any help really appreciated
