Uh, yeah....the topic pretty much says it all. Which rib pattern do you prefer for the cuff of a sock?? I've done 1x1 and 2x2. I like the 2x2 but this last time it seemed too loose. Not sure why. I am experimenting with a 3x3 rib but I'm not sure if it will be looser or tighter than the others.
In the last two pairs of socks I've done 2x2. I like it. Infact, to help the sock stay put, I've done 2x2 all the way down the leg - but then again, we are talking about knee-highs that I plan on wearing with my skirts.
I suppose I will be difficult and say that I have no fave!! LOL
Knitting the cuff in a smaller diameter needle is often done so that the cuff will be tight; especially if you are playing with colorwork & there's not much ribbing.
