Yarn: 2 Balls Patons North America Kroy Socks 4 Ply
Colour: Glen Check
Needles: 3mm dpn
Start: June 28 Finish: September 18, 2014
My first go at the problem this time yielded the weird result pictured above. It fit but by the time I'd decreased away the gusset made with a long heel flap to match his high instep. the top of the sock wrapped around under the ball of his foot.
So the decreases and shorter heel worked to give us a good result although I may add just a few more rows to the heel on the next pair to guard against wear.
I'm thinking 1x1 ribbed cuff, then stockinette with a little cable running down the outside of each leg and splitting at the heel. I'd like to see how the "Glen Check" yarn looks in stocking stitch. I'll use the same stitch count and look forward to only working 2 socks rather than almost three in order to yield a pair!
