Advice Please

The hubby likes the Mansocks , but he would like them to be a bit longer. Since I have some yarn left over, I thought I would oblige.

Here is a shot of a longer sock he likes and the new cuff I knit.
A close-up:

So the question now, is how to attach. The sock was knit cuff down, so I can't just unpick a bind-off. I could snip a strand to get live stitches and then graft. But I have only ever grafted stockinette. How does one graft a K2P2? Or I could simply knit (and purl) the new cuff to the old, I suppose. Although I imagine that would give it a ridge. Not awful, but not ideal. Anyone have any ideas? Or done this before?
