Frog It!


I am posting a picture just so you know that I really am working on this. Yea, I figured out the toe and then what a downer...Look at that toe. I am shoe size 10 extra wide. Those sizzling 60's that had us alternating between 3 inch spike heels and Birkenstocks gave many of us of the "Boomer Generation" such "great understanding". There is no way this is going to fit my foot. This would fit my skinny teenage granddaughter who wears size 8 1/2 or my four year old granddaughter who also has a wide foot but I am sure I would have strangulation of the large toe. I used the larger needles and by no stretch of the imagination could you say that I am a tight knitter. The next step is to pull it out again and work with a pattern that tells how to enlarge to fit a BIG foot. Once I get that figured out I can return and hopefully figure out how to apply this pattern.

hi, you can just add multiples of six stitches to the pattern, on the foot part that gives you three extra plain stockinette stitches on the top of the foot and 3 plain on the bottom of the foot, once you get to the cuff you have two extra 1x2 ribs.

Well, I wasn't thinking that clearly - but what fabienne said:) I know you can do this - you can do anything, right?!:)

I agree! This would be a very simple pattern to add stitches to. How many stitches do you usually cast on for a sock?

Since the middle is all stockinette - just like the other girls said - work from what you would normally cast on and make you have 10 on the side for the pattern.
