- To make the fluffy edge to the cuff, I cast on with the fun fur and knit 3 rounds in K1P1 ribbing. Then I switched to the sock yarn for the rest of the sock.
I really like Sockotta yarn. However, it does seem to fade quite a bit with washing and wear. Also, this yarn is very inelastic and so is not good for patterns that need a lot of stretch (like Jaywalkers -- I learned that the hard way).
