Ok, I’m trying to knit Guy (the boyfriend finally has a name on here that isn’t his real one!) some socks, but I don’t know what the circumference should be.
Yes, I’ve knit my Dad socks but my Dad also puts up with a whole lot of sock trials to get a proper fit over his extra large calves (Dad if you’re reading this sorry but it’s true, and it’s all muscle to your benefit!).
However Guy is built more like your average tall man in his 20’s so my best guess is a leg circumference of 9.5 inches, is this a good estimate?

p.s. Yes I’ve tried the good old fashioned ask him to measure thing three times, but he only tells me his shoe size, which doesn’t help me too much for circumference.
