im knitting a cast cover for a friend of mine who will be in Canada in a week or so and needs something to prevent her cast from gettting wet.
here are the measurements that ive gotten from her:
Start of cast (near the toes) to back of heel 8 3/4"
Tip of big toe to start of cast 2 3/4"
Around the largest/thickest part of the cast which happens to be near the toes (around the ball of the foot) 13.5"
i want to do this with a circular needle. can i do it on a size 7 or 9 circular, 16 inch?
im thinking of starting at the top of her foot (nearest the heel) and then going to the toes. im thinking of casting off at the toes like you do a hat (the last hat i did had 40 stitches left on it and then i just put the yarn through the stitches and closed it. easy peasy.
my friend is sending hemp/wool yarn if that is any help.
i am doing the cover from the top of her foot to the toes and then knitting a 2 inch strap that will attach to the cover, go behind her heel and button on the other side, if that makes any sense at all.
can anyone give me any pointers? ill try to find a pix of what im trying to knit and post it in a few minutes.
