The Baby Back Ribs sock pattern offers a lot of stretchy goodness and the nicely aligned columns of baby back ribs are just so soft and squishy that you want to eat them up!

This is an easy-to-knit project that features a very stetchy and quick-to-memorize stitch/row repeat, a garter tab heel flap, an optional fitted arch and an anatomically correct rounded toe. This pattern provides instructions for knitting the socks cuff down to toe in three sizes (small, medium and large). Experienced toe-up sock knitters can easily adapt this pattern.

All sizes of this pattern have been test knitted.

Please try your socks on as you make them to ensure they fit.
