I’m done with the increases and I have 3 or 4 inches left on the knee high. The self-patterning did get narrower but I still think it looks OK.
Now I’m trying to decide how to finish off the top. The options I’m considering are:
- Keep knitting straight and do 1.5 inches of ribbing to finish it off
- Decrease some stitches the last couple of inches and then switch to ribbing, with the hope that the decreasing will help keep the socks up
- Knit in some elastic for the last few inches. Do they make clear elastic?
All you knee high experts out there — what do you think?
