View Full Version : Large Calf sock pattern please?

01-19-2008, 04:09 PM
I am looking for a sock pattern for fingering weight sock yarn to accomodate a 12" calf and 8" foot. I am thinking something stretchy would work, but don't want a monotonous rib pattern. I could probably work with a larger needle for the cuff and decrease as I go toward the ankle. Any ideas? I'm an intermediate knitter. Thanks for any and all ideas.:)

THis is what I decided upon for the pattern. It is from Barbara Bush's Knitting on the Road: Sock Patterns for the Travelling Knitter. the pattern is called Canal du Midi and I used Knitpicks Essential Dusk. View the picture at: http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/ameschwitz/
