I’m doing a pattern right now that is one row of K2/P2 followed by a row of just knit – I am carrying this all the way down the leg and over the top of the foot. I can’t remember the name of the pattern now – it is from Sensational Knitted Socks – I think it is called garter rib.
On a previous pair I did just a few inches of ribbing and then a pattern that carried down the leg and over the top of the foot. I would think that plain stockinette would be a little slouchy :shrug:
I’ve been doing socks on DPNS – which I don’t mind at all – BUT, I have a shipment coming from Knitpicks of their classic circulars to try socks on 2 circs using Cat Bordhi’s book, Socks Soar on 2 Circs. I’m toying with trying to make my second sock of this pair on 2 circs that are the same size as the DPNS I’m currently using (2’s) I wonder if my gauge will be significantly different using 2 circs over 4 DPNS?
