Notes This pattern is often incorrectly referred to as Simple Ribbed Socks. It is easy to mistake the chapter sub-section title for the pattern name, because they are the on the same page (24); the sock picture label on the same page clearly identifies it as the Madder Ribbed Sock.

From Nancy Bush's Pattern Description This ribbed sock has a Dutch or Horseshoe Heel and a Pointed Toe.  This heel is similar to a Square Heel, and the toe is a variation on the Star Toe…I have rewritten the instructions for the heel and toe shaping to get the same results as in Weldon’s.
