[color=green][b]Hello!

I am having problems with determining how to calculate sock size.

I need a little help in this problem…

I need the mathematical formula to determined the socks working stitches (CO). I 've got the measurement part handled. I know how to measure the parts of the foot/leg. I just need to know how to calculate these figures to start the sock.

The measurements are…

Right foot/leg:

cir ankle 11-1/2"

cir mid calf 16-1/2"

cir below knee 17"

length of foot is 9"

5 stitches per inch…using LB WoolEase yarn

2X2 Ribbing for the cuff, and stocking stitch for the sock, and the person has a swelling problem. The cuff is top down.

and…

Left foot/leg:

cir ankle 12"

cir mid calf 19"

cir below knee 18"

length of foot is 10-1/2"

5 stitches per inch…using LB WoolEase yarn

2X2 Ribbing for the cuff, stocking stitch for the sock, and the person has a swelling problem. The cuff is top down.

These sock are splite sizes, and planned to go up to the knees. So, these are knee highs, so would the cir below knee is what you multiply instead of the ankle?

I did try to look on the internet for the information first, but what I found is complicated, so I can’t figure it out. Also a sock generator will not work in this situation unless the generator is for top down. I need to know the steps on how to calculate the problem the old fashion way.
