I’m tackling my first sock project in many, many years…
I’ll be doing Priscilla Gibson-Roberts Eastern European Footlets from Interweave Winter 2003. It’s a toe-up, short row toe & heel pattern.
From the directions:
Finished Size: 8-1/4 (9-1/2)" circumference around foot. To fit a woman (man).
Well, hmmm…when I measure around my foot in the instep area and over the top at the highest point, I get 9-3/4 - 10"!!! Are my feet really that gargantuan, or am I not measuring in the right place?
She does say later on:
You can achieve a custom fit by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches in 4-stitch increments. To customize the foot length (measured from tip of longest toe to ankle point [is that where the ankle bone sticks out the furthest???]), work in stockinette to 2-1/2" less than desired length, then work pattern band.
Any help appreciated. :??
