Another pair of socks done! This pattern by Irish Girlie is a wonderful way to show off any variegated colorway. The fun and simple lace can be easily customized to a toe up formula as I did.
Also, I did a bit of a short cuff and needed the hugginess of a rib at the top. I worked with the Cotty lace pattern and my Cotty rib goes something like this:
after the last lace row.
Row 1: *K1, M1, K2, M1, K1, M1 [repeat from *]
Row 2: *K1, P1, K2, P1, K2, P1 [*repeat from *]
Repeat row 2 until rib is desired length.
I think I’ll try the picot edge cuff next time (and I will be knitting another pair). I recently found a great technique in Wendy D. Johnson’s book “Socks from the Toe Up.”
