I too made the larger size and am more of a laid back knitter where I am not worried about the chart error. I think it looks just fine. I do now realize that the smaller size would have been more appropriate for my legs but this one still works!
One sock down...I actually finished Tuesday so exactly one week to finish and already on the chart for the second! I predict that there will be plenty of knitting tonight too so this one should also go fast!
Here's sock #1!
