I learned to knit the worst way there is - from a book! And not even a good book, a really crappy one (Knitting for Dummies)! For some reason I stuck with it, and now I'm thoroughly addicted.
Ive been a licensed massage therapist, a yarn dyer for a small hand-dyed yarn company, and spent many years as an office slave. As previously noted, I compulsively knit, design and spin in my free time. If Im not doing any of the above, you can find me playing music in the band Shalloboi, in which I sing and play drums.
A twist on the average ribbed sock, this simple pattern is enough to keep you interested all the way through. You can choose to make both socks scallop in the same direction, or have them be mirror images of each other (there are instructions for both variations). Also great for variegated yarns!
This pattern was originally published in February 2008. It has since been updated to include an additional size option, clearer instructions, better photos, and most importantly...CHARTS!
