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.
7 stitches and 11 rows = 1" in stockinette stitch
I've been crafting since forever, knitting fanatically since about 2006 and designing since 2008. When not knitting, I teach university students about primates and play with my horses.
