First, I'm knitting toe up, started with US1 needles and on the upper cuff, in K2P2 rib, moved to US2.

I want to finish the K2P2 cuff with K1P1 rib. Should I move back to US1? Or two needle sizes to US 0? I also have US 1.5. Or, should I stick with US2? Anybody got a read on this?

Thanks!

It depends. What do you want it to look like?

Run a lifeline through your last k2p2 round. Then do the k1p1 with whatever needle you want. If you like the look, bind off. If you don't like it, go back to your lifeline and try a different needle size.

I have to agree with Janet. You don't say if you intend the k1p1 rib to be turned down over the k2p3. If that was the case you may want to stay with US2 or even go up to US3.

Personally, I would think that going down a size for the k1p1 would tighten the cuff up too much, so I would either stick with the 2 or go up to a 3 as socks4all suggests.

Ok everyone, I finally figured this out! Because my last round was worked on needles a size smaller, I decided to tick with my original plan and work Kitchener stitch for the edge. s you may have read elsewhere, I sent my latest music book to the printer, and I finally have some interest in knitting again. I've just bound off one of the socks and will start the other one now. If you look at the date at the top of this page to see when this thread started,nim a little embarrassed that it has taken this long to finish these. But knitting has not been able to be on my mind until now. My head has been too full of first inversions and sus4 chords! I even got a haircut yesterday for the first time in a year!
