I'm making socks for the first time and I want to use elastic thread in the ribbing or cuff, so the sock will stay up better. any tips or things I need to be aware of?
I am currently making a pair of socks using Patons Stretch sock yarn and they are working up beautifully.
If your yarn happens to be of average or low stretch, you may find this tutorial for adding an elastic section to the tops of your socks useful.
I found it quite neat.
