Without measurements, even a simple scarf cannot be knitted, and for such unfinished socks, you will need to make small measurements. Measure the circumference above the knee, the circumference of the ankles and the desired length of the product (make an addition to the beautiful folds from 10 cm).
Use the main circuit of the product and make a small square. Next, using a small ruler, measure how many columns were 10 cm in a row, and also measure how many such rows turned out to be 10 cm. Calculate how many columns will be needed for a set of loops.
