I'm looking into knitting these slipper socks http://www.patonsyarns.com/pattern.php?PID=2701 but I want to use a chunky/bulky yarn instead (like WoolEase Chunky, something thick and cheap to experiment with). I think the gauge will be off, obviously. I know this will result in a bigger finished product, but is there a way to figure out -how much- bigger? The pattern states there are sizes at the beginning but in the pattern itself there is no difference in stitch numbers or anything. I -want- to make sure it is a little bigger since I bet my legs are a bit thicker than most. Since it is cuff down, should I just experiment by knitting a few rounds and seeing if it will fit my leg? Or is there a smarter way to do this?
