Granddaughter Sydney sent this yarn and asked for a pair of socks. How could I refuse that request?
Yarn: Trekking XXL, 75% Superwash wool, 25% Nylon.
Needles: Options 2.5mm circulars.
Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch.
Pattern: Basic cuff down sock on 48 stitches.
The stitch pattern in the cuff is a simple knit/purl ribbing. I think it looks best on self striping socks with wide stripes, a solid color, or a kettle dyed color.
Pattern multiples: 6 stitches, 5 rows.
Row 1: k5, p1
Row 2: k2, p1, k2, p1
Row 3: k1, p3, k1, p1
Row 4: p2, k1, p3
Row 5: p1, k3, p2
End cuff by knitting Row 1 four times before starting heel.
