Hi. My first time here but a long-time knitter. I seem to have a brain block for converting a pattern to using more stitches. A few years ago, I found the double moss rib stitch and liked it a lot. So I used it to create a fingerless glove pattern. Everything worked out great and I have knit a lot of these over the last few years. Now I’m trying to convert it to a sock pattern using around 60 stitches on size 2 DPNs but am having trouble getting the stitches to come out right. Here is the pattern for the gloves:
Cast on 42 stitches, arrange on 3 DPNs: Needle 1 12 stitches, needle 2 18 stitches, needle 3 12 stitches.
Begin pattern stitch:
Round 1: p1, k2 Repeat around.
Round 2: Repeat round 1.
Round 3: p1, k1 Repeat around.
Round 4: Repeat round 3.
Repeat these four rounds until the cuff is 4 inches long.
I have tried multiples of 6 and multiples of 6 + 1 stitches but can’t get it to come out right. To make it even more complicated, I’m knitting in the round.
Can anyone please help me figure this out? Thanks in advance!
