I just got my new yarn for my hubbies socks Trekking XXL it’s nice. But I am not sure about the needle size. I’m making socks for a size 13 shoe , the label says 2-3mm?? so is that mean in US sizes o-3?
Hubby wants a long ribbed cuff, about 8-9 inches then just the basic sock pattern done. This will only be my third pair of socks I’ve made so far.
I want to try the circular so bad with these but I don’t know about the yarn it’s self. It’s 75%new wool ,25% nylon now is that fingerweight,superfine? it feels very light to the touch. Someone said that if it’s to fine you can’t work it on circulars.
In “Getting Started Knitting Socks” on page19 it shows how to do One Long Circular needle. Do you do the cuff on the circulars as well?(working cuff down)
I was looking at the Basic Sock Chart too, but I don’t understand what I should be putting in the blanks on the Instructions For Basic Sock Chart.
I think I could follow the chart if someone could help me fill in the blanks. Like ,turing the heel, on row 1 do I p 19 and row 2 ,k5 assuming I co 68 sts?
I’m sure once I have followed the chart I’ll better understand it. but just looking at it is some what confusing at first glance.
