Diagonal Lace Knit-Along
February 21, 2011 § 3 Comments
I’m experimenting with some different toe techniques on these. On one sock toe I used the Make One (M1) increase. I really don’t like the M1 increase.
On the other sock I used the Knit Through the Loop of the Stitch Below increase. KnittingHelp.com calls it the Knit Right Loop (KRL) increase.
Also, I did a few rows of increasing every 2nd row, then switched to increasing every 3rd row. Seeing them here, I think I could have done a few less of the increase every 2nd row and a few more of the increase every 3rd row to create a more rounded toe. I’m a whole lot more comfortable and confident knitting top-down socks, so it’s my goal to get over my intimidation of toe-up socks.
Trisha and I talked about what our next two patterns might be. This is our tentative schedule:
