I am knitting a pair of 'pirate' socks as requested by my brother. He wants orange/yellow one inch stripe sequence knee high's. I'm doing the cuff in 2/2 rib which he would like to measure 3 inches. Does that mean I should make the ribbed cuff 6 inches and he folds it in half or 3 inches and he folds it down onto the stocking stitch? My initial thought was 6 inches but now I'm wondering why! I can't find a free pattern to check this out.
What do my fellow KP'ers think?
