Last week l made a sock.
A 60 stitch on 2.5mm needle sock.
MrK tried it on and declared it too loose.
I got a different ball of the same wool and cast on again using 48 stitches on 3mm needles.
Same pattern – 2×2 twisted rib.
Result, much better fit.
I’ve started sock 2.
48 stitches work up really quickly with 3mm needles.
