Hi Knitting socks using fingering weight yarn and 2.25 DPN’s… have finished the ribbing , but it looks really small…will that change once the socks are finished??
Ribbing does have a lot of stretch and usually looks a bit on the small side while knitting it. Are the socks for you, if so you can try them on even while using dpns!! There’s usually enough room for the sts to spread across the length of the dpn to carefully try this, or you could use dpn end stoppers or elastic bands (if you have some)
Are you knitting them for an adult? How many did you cast on?
