Wandering inside a Marks and Spencer’s recently, the one in Dubai Festival City if you want to know, I came across a line of machine-knitted sweaters which was nothing more than a series of ribbing from hem to neckline. As a hand knitter, my first thought was “I can do that!” and then thought to myself, “What if I put that series of ribbing onto a pair of socks?”

So began my first attempt at designing a pair of hand knitted socks. These socks are not exactly how the sweater looked like but I hope you enjoy knitting this as much as I had fun figuring out the ribbing!

Plissé would be great in semi-solid, highly variegated and even self-striping colourways.

Sizes available: S (M, L) To fit ankle circumference 8 (9.5, 11) inches. Foot lengths of more than 7.25 (7.5, 9.25) inches are possible.
