UPDATE 10/23/2011: Pattern revised to include easier-to-read charts.

I thought of this pattern as soon as I cast off for my Katie Socks. I had been trying to figure out what to do with this yarn because it was so soft and pretty and needed some twisted stitches, and then I thought of this. An evening of playing around with some scrap sock yarn and I figured out how to make the ribs work in this. Here is the result. It’s a top-down sock with a garter cuff (that waves a bit with the stitch pattern - which I like). There is no cabling involved, simply twisted rib, increases, and decreases. The pattern is charted and while it may look a bit daunting at first, it really is easy to remember.
