I am about to begin Pomatomus socks (having finished my Baudelaires!). I like to use every bit of wool and make them as long as possible, so I’m doing them toe-up. I don’t like the normal slightly pointy toes - could I round them out a bit by increasing from 20 original stitches instead of 16? Would you recommend 24 instead? Searching for ‘socks round toe’ etc.of course gets me lots of patterns saying ‘work around’ and ‘work 1 round’.
Also, if anyone’s done them, any comments on the difficulty of 2 circs - I know moving stitches around can be done on these, and I prefer this method. Does anyone have useful thoughts on reversing the pattern, as well? I need to make the ktbl stitch twist the other way?
I suppose I could do one toe-up, then I’d know how high I could make the leg, and make the next top-down, that would reverse the pattern!! But I would prefer 2 on 2 circs. Hope someone’s done them (I’ve read all KAL pages I could find too).
Thanks heaps! Sarah
