Large Calf sock pattern please?
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.
