The Ripple Effect Socks will play with your mind. You’ll be convinced that tiny cables are wrapping around the sock and would take forever to knit. But in reality it is the clever use of purl and knit ribbing that is continually shifting to create the effect.
The beauty of these socks is they are dead simple and great for the beginner that wants to knit it up a notch without dealing with a complicated pattern or the experienced knitter. This pattern is incredibly stretching and will accommodated a wide range of calf and foot sizes.
Because the pattern is so stretchy and a variation of 2 x 2 rib, you can immediately launch into the pattern fun.
Teton Yarn Company Hand Dyed Mountain Sock Yarn, a durable but soft, 4 ply Superwash Merino Sock Yarn with generous yardage with the right amount of twist to hold up to socks but soft enough to wear next to the skin for a variety of projects such as shawls, shawlettes, baby blankets, wraps, gloves and hats.
