The “Ridgeway” pattern seems to be identical to Barbara Walker’s “Mistake-stitch Ribbing”.

These socks are knitted on 2 needles. After a band of simple K2, P3 ribbing, the rest of the leg is knitted in pattern.

At the ankle, the heel is worked in two pieces, one at either side of the knitting, which are bound off. Continuing to knit in pattern on the remaining stitches forms the top of the foot and the top half of the shaped toe.

When that is finished, the cast-off rows of the two heel pieces are sewn together. Then stitches are picked up from the forward edge of the heel and worked to form the bottom half of the foot and shaped toe.

The sock is then sewed together up the back of the leg, and the bottom and top of the foot are sewn together along a horizontal seam partway up the side of the foot.
