So, I'm knitting my first pair of cuff-down socks in the hope that they'll fit my feet better than the toe-up ones I've done. I'm using the "welt fantastic" stitch pattern from Sensational Socks, and it looks so awesome on the needles. But then when I go to try on the sock, the fabric has to really stretch to get over my heel - creating ladders in between the decreases. I tried doing the 88-stitch pattern next, and ended up with about an inch's worth of space in between my foot and the sock. The 66-stitch sock has no chance whatsoever of ever fitting over my heel. I added two extra stitches to each pattern repeat to bring it up to a 78-stitch sock, but I'm still getting the laddering problem.

Is there any way around that, or is that just what the sock will do no matter what I try?
