Knitting, Socks

Tweaking the Pattern

Hey Everyone!

My journey to finding the perfect basic sock pattern is still evolving. I have it pretty well pegged down, though every so often I try something a little different to see if I like it any better than the previous version. 

This time I tweaked my go to pattern ever so slightly. This time around I added 7 rows to what I had been putting between the cuff and heel flap of the sock, bringing the total to 10 rows. I have to say that I actually am liking the 10 rows between the cuff and the start of the heel flap over just 3 rows. 

I am hoping this is the last tweak for a while.

I think it looks a little more like a sock should this way.
