Is it gonna fit?
I need some quick help with my sockapalooza socks. All the socks I’ve ever knit have not fit well, and I can’t allow that for my pal’s socks. Here goes.
My guage with the yarn I’m using is 7.75 sts/inch.
My pal’s foot circumference is 9″ (don’t worry, it’s not you).
I cast on 64 sts for the cuff and leg, which gives me a finished measurement of 8.25″. (That is, 64 divided by 7.75 equals 8.25)
Are the socks going to be big enough? Is an 8.25″ finished size big enough for a 9″ foot? The pattern is stretchy because it’s ribbed so I feel like maybe possibly it will work, but I’m having doubts. Any ideas (or encouragement!) would be greatly appreciated. And if I have to unravel, I’d like to do it early in the game – but I am willing! These socks must be perfect!
