Day Three: Cuff Options, Body of the Sock

I made some fair progress on the body of the sock while watching this – 440 stitches worth, to be exact! Nothing unexpected so far.

Biggest take-aways today:
Even numbers of knit and purl stitches in cuff ribbing (2×2, 1×1) provide the most stability in a sock’s cuff. Seed stitch and linen stitch will do the job, but this will change the stretch.

She also talked about doing a garter stitch cuff, but I’m not a fan of the style. In the video, she has a brioche sock in the background, and this cuff folded over looks cool. I should work on improving my brioche knitting next month…

Anyhow, that’s all for today!
