Best BO for K2P2 ribbed toe up socks?
I am under the impression that I need to bind off loosely for toe up socks. The pattern of the legging is just k2p2 and I would like to know if I can substitute from one of Amy's videos or if there is a BO method for k2p2 that I could learn.

Links or instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Thankies

When I bind off for k2p2 ribbing, I just knit the knits and purl the purls and bind them off.

I have no clue if this is the right way for your socks, though. That is, I don't know if it is considered a tight or loose bind off.

I made the loops really loose to BO and it worked like a charm. Funny little story though... :rollseyes:

...I watched Amy's video on the knit BO and went to watch the video for the purl BO but clicked the wrong link (I don't know how I did it, so don't ask...) and couldn't figure it out. That's when I came here because I was so confused.

Have to unknit part of the other sock, re-knit, and then BO that one. Then maybe I can post some pics.

Thankies Ingy
