Usually you need three skeins of Koigu for a pair of socks--most other yarns only require 2.

You could shorten the cuff OR if you don't want to rip out all your hard work--you could do the toes for both socks in different color. No one really sees the toes anyway--plus it's a neat design feature ;)


Koigu is thicker than most sock yarns, so the yardage is less for the same weight of yarn. For short women's socks, 2 hanks works, but if you like taller socks, you usually need 3 or to use contrast yarn for heels and/or toes.

Definitely weigh them, but i think solid color toes would look great! :)
