trying to figure out a rounded sock toe, as i’m casting on socks for me (finally, and my big feet don’t work well with wedge toe boxes). but i think i’m missing something. i’ve looked at multiple patterns, and there are many differences.
some have you start with 10, 12, 14 stitches, and increase at each end/side, every row. some have you increase on the 2nd stitch from the end, some the 2nd stitch on some rounds, and the 4th stitch on other rounds. some have you increase at each end on each side, but then do 2 rounds of plain knits instead of 1…
another pattern/tutorial i saw said to divide up your increases into 4 parts… do the first 4th every other row, the 2nd 4th with 2 plain rows in between, the 3rd 4th with 3 plain rows in between and the last 4th with 4 plain rows in between… are they just trying to confuse me, or are they getting kickbacks from row counter companies?
so, is there an actual standard rounded toe? and if so, what is it, where can i find the pattern, etc.?
