Silver's Sock Class- help
I am working on the ribbing part, and some how I miss counted and I have 20, 22, and 24 stitches on my needles. should be 22, 20, 22.
Should I do a decrease and make it even, or just keep it the way it is now. I am not far about 1/2 inch into the start of the top of the sock.

Thanks,
Tracy

You can do one of 3 three things:

1. Since you're not far into the sock, you can start all over again, or at least rip back to where you increased accidentally. This would be my first choice.
2. You can just keep going as it is, and when you get to the very end of the ribbing section and are about to start stockinette stitch, then decrease where appropriate so that you have the right number of stitches to continue. If you do this, you should cast on the 2nd sock with 20 -22 - 24 so that they will match. This would be my 2nd choice.
3. Decrease now. That would be a very distant 3rd choice for me, as it will look funny. However, they are near your ankles and no one should be looking that closely at knitting down there.

Since its just the ribbing you can move the stitches around to make the counts correct. Just make sure that you stay within the ribbing pattern. Just slip the stitches from one needle to the other.

IF you do any decreases at this time your counts will be off and therefore the whole sock will be off. You will have to create more stitches to compensate for the ones you took away. When you create stitches you run into the possibility of holes. Silvers class sock doesn't have any holes.

No-- just moving them around isn't going to help. She does need to decrease at some point if she keeps going. The pattern calls for 64 sts and she's got 66.

I just did a decrease, and I think it looks ok. Its my first sock, so it will have some booboos in it.
Thanks for your help.
