A Nice Ribbed Sock
I love knitting socks of all kinds – from the very simple to the very complex. When I need something basic, I cast on a pair of ribbed socks in a colourway that pleases me. Ribbing is no more difficult than plain stockinette and can likewise be used with solid or multi-coloured sock yarns of any kind, but adds extra snugness in the fit.
Feel free to use your choice of fingering weight yarn! Something that works well at 8 sts/inch is best.
This is a basic, cuff-down, 3x1 ribbed sock pattern with a flap heel and gussets. It is written for fingering-weight yarn for one size of 64 sts around, to fit foot/ankle circumference of 8-9 inches. To accommodate smaller or larger foot sizes, decrease or increase the number of cast-on stitches by a multiple of 4.
Please note I am not able to guarantee pattern support for free patterns after their 1st year of release.
This pattern was originally released in 2010.
