I understand how to knit socks, turn heel etc.
My question is about the size of a sock, knitted cuff to the rest of it. My socks start out fine (top down) but when I get to the foot, they seem to balloon out and the foot part seems huge.
No I am not adding increases. I just frogged a sock I was knitting for my 4 year old g-son. Using Anne Budd’s book Handy Book of Patterns. Cast on 52, gauge is correct. Cuff looks perfect for his lower leg.
Turned the heel and halfway into the foot the sock looks like it would fit a six year old.
I know ribbing pulls in. This has also happened on a pair of socks for my DH.
