i'd say start over and try the next size up needles - you just seem to be knitting pretty tightly right now. have a great weekend!!


Ohhh, innit pretty?! I'm a wykked tight knitter, and I, too, had problem passing the stitches over, but it all turned out perfectly in the end. I did try to concentrate on loosening up, but that only worked for a little while, then it would happen again.


ooooooo, so purty! I'd go up a needle size... if knitting with koigu isn't RELAXING, it's time for some of the Mother of all worts in Norma's Crone garden!
Safe travels!


I suggest just trying it on. If its running tight then rip it and go up a needle size. I've also fiddled with needle sizes for that pattern, using a larger needle for the first couple of inches and then using a smaller needle for the ankle. What size needle are you using? I normally use a 2.25mm or a 2.5mm (1 or 1.5 US).

I'd go with Cassie on the F&F socks. She's made a bunch of them. They look great! Thanks for the link, it brought tears to my eyes.
