If knitting were music, the basic stitch counts could tell you the rhythm (or time), and the knits and purls could be the notes. If knitting were music, a simple two by two rib could be translated to the Key of C (no sharps or flats, just natural notes), in 2/2 time (or cut time). Based on the musical scale Key of D, two stitches become sharps, and move across the front of the leg and top of the foot, in a simple melody that starts with a simple rib, and riffs to become a song for your feet.

Knit from the top cuff down, these socks include an afterthought heel and wedge toe. Suggestions are provided for using contrast yarns and optional compression foot.

Pattern is both written and charted.
