Okay, this is going to sound really dumb, but I'm all set to start these awesome socks (Hedera from Knitty, http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATThedera.html) and I know I need the larger size for my size 9 feet. No big deal. But where exactly does that start on the pattern?

I see in the beginning it seems to be the same for either size, and at the end there are special directions for the larger size, but where is it that I actually have more stitches (in other words, where does the "switch" from same for both to more stitches for large take place)? I've looked and I'm baffled!

I would just go for it, but I'm planning on these to be beach weekend knitting and I really don't want to figure out that they're small near the end of the sock  Tongue

Help would be super appreciated  Cheesy

The only place I can see anything different is here:

The last two lines of the gusset -
Repeat these 2 rounds 18[16] times more. 14[16] sts rem on Needle 1, 29 sts on Needle 2, 15[17] sts rem on Needle 3; 58[62] sts in total.
Because you are decreasing 2 stitches on each of these rounds doing only 16 repeats you would end up with the 2 extra stitches you need.

and here in the middle of the toe section -
Repeat these 2 rounds 7[8] times more. 6 sts on Needle 1, 13 sts on Needle 2, 7 sts on Needle 3.

I haven't every made these socks but I love a mystery so I looked. I might add that you are not crazy  Smiley I was just about to reply that I couldn't see any difference either but that part about doing less repeats for a larger size (in the gusset section) kept bugging me so after about 3 or 4 reads it finally clicked.

Basically for the larger size you get 2 extra stitches in both width and length but she does say the lace is stretchy.

Edited to add: I guess you really get as much extra length as you want because the instep instructions say: until foot measures approx. 1.5 inches less than desired length
