I recently purchased a couple of balls of Maizy yarn (corn / elastic blend). My intention was to use it to teach myself how to knit socks.
I also bought a hank of colinette jitterbug.
The pattern that came with the jitterbug is the one I am using.
Everything seemed to fit okay with this pattern until I got it finished and the part from the heel to the toe was too short. I followed the pattern exactly so I know that’s not the problem. I was also hitting the gauge for stitches okay.
After the sock was finished and I discovered it didn’t fit the way I thought it would, I checked gauge again and noticed that my row gauge was way, way off.
Is that typical of yarn with elastic content?
I bought another set of DPNs, a full size up from the first one’s I used and am now re-knitting the sock.
I suppose I’m just looking on suggestions on what’s the best use of elastic-content fiber, any explanation on why the row gauge would show so far off when stitch gauge was right on, and any comments on the jitterbug sock pattern.:shrug:
