I am working on a twisted stitch design for top down socks. I started one sock and got half-way done using my standard needle size of 2.25mm. Since the design has a lot of stitches, I increased my stitch count from 64 to 72. HOWEVER….silly me, it “looked” like enough stitches to fit my foot. I bet you can guess what I am going to write next huh?
Well, the sock doesn’t fit. Since my design is pretty set to use the entire front half of the sock, there really wasn’t any logical way to modify the pattern for additional stitches. Plus, I really liked the design as it was. So, I started another sock using 2.5mm DPNs. The fabric that is created is less stiff and I’m pleased with it.
I would show you, but my goal for this year is to submit the design to a magazine and I can’t have any pictures posted online so for now, you will have to wait to see!
