Jenny Wren toe up sock is a simple rib pattern with a cable to add visual interest. This minimalist design works extremely well with wide striping yarn like Noro’s Kureyon Sock. The pattern would be equally striking in a solid, semi-solid, or subtle variegated yarn. The sock features the magic cast on for toe up socks, a symmetrical cable placed asymmetrically on the sock, a YO short row heel, and tubular bind off at the cuff. Double purl stitches places each quarter add variation to the ribbing.
