I wanted to make some Christmas slipper socks with jingle bells for my nieces and nephews. I chose a cotton yarn for the socks because all the kids live in pretty warm climates and I thought wool or acrylic would make their feet too hot. Anyways, I was just wondering if anyone had any tips about using cotton and sizing for socks? The kids are all three so they are theoretically sort of in between the sizes recommended on this website:
I wasn’t sure if I should keep the socks a little on the small size so that they can stretch out to their feet (since I’ve read that sometimes cotton sags). On the other hand, I always read about how inelastic cotton is so I wonder if it needs to be a little more ‘roomy’. Any advice is very welcome.
