TTL Mystery Sock 2017
Welcome to the Through the Loops Mystery Sock 2017! Please join the Fans of Through the Loops group to participate in the KAL, ask questions, and show off your progress. Please ask questions in the Ravelry group rather than in private messages or email.
Please use a “spoiler” photo as the first photo on your Ravelry project page. This may be the official KAL image or any other photo that does not show the Mystery Sock
in progress. Likewise, avoid spoiling the mystery for others by only posting progress photos in the appropriate thread in the Ravelry group. We will have spoiler threads for each week of the KAL.
Finished Measurements: 6.5 (7.5, 8.5)” / 16.5 (19, 21.5)cm circumference at foot and leg, see notes about sizing. Length is customizable.
A note about sizing, Socks are meant to be worn with negative ease. This means that when selecting size you should choose a size that is 1.5 -3” / (3.75-7.5cm) less than the circumference of the foot and ankle. If there is a large difference between the foot and ankle, select the size for the foot and adjust the needle size for the leg to make it larger or smaller. The length of the foot is customizable.
It is important to check your gauge and adjust your needle size as necessary. Do not assume that you will use the same size needles that are called for in the pattern. I cannot emphasize this strongly enough. The needle size given is just a suggestion, every knitter is different.
I recommend a solid or semi-solid yarn to avoid obscuring the stitch patterns.
