It’s the perfect boyfriend sock, with a staggered beginning to the K3, P2 ribbing lending interest and variety to this basic ribbed sock. It’s a great sock to learn the ins and outs of toe-up sock construction and short rows, but it has enough variation from a normal two-by-two ribbing to keep your attention. You may end up knitting these socks in your favorite guy colors, as the stretch in this sock allows a fit for a wide range of sizes.
