I am knitting some fat slipper socks for when I go ice skating. How long should I make the cuff? It is a very very pretty shade of blue and I do not want to waste it by making socks that are not long enough. TIA! :muah:

I would make them so they come up above the top of the skate, so it protects my leg from being rubbed by the skate. Maybe a tad extra to roll over the top of the skate?

I'm not sure of the exact measurement, but ice skates usually hit right below where my calf starts.

You could also try them on as you go.
