A carefree ribbed sock with options for scallops or ruffles at the ankle

A ribbed sock with attitude! This pattern comes in a variety of sizes, with a choice of optional frilled tops for a flamboyant and elastic upper edge. The foot has a ribbed upper for a snug fit.
This sock is ideal for showing off an exotic space-dyed yarn.

This pattern also appears in my book, Cool Socks Warm Feet, available in paper or .pdf formats.
