Adding Your Own Color or Texture Pattern: Stripe Patterns Fibonacci Stripes Socks- One of my favorite stripe sequences is based on the Fibonacci series, where you begin with the numbers 1 and 2, then add the last two numbers of the series together to come up with the next. Magic Ball Socks- These socks are knitted from five different colors of yarn that were leftover from various other projects. Rib Patterns- The juxtaposition of columns of knit and purl stitches causes the fabric to contract widthwise, making ribbed patterns ideal for snug-fitting socks. Seeded Rib Socks- The masculine rib pattern on the leg and instep of these socks alternates single knit stitches with 2 purl stitches and 2 seed stitches. Spiral Rib Socks- The diagonal pattern on these thick socks is nothing more than a knit 2, purl 2 rib that shifts laterally 1 stitch every round. Cable Patterns- Most cable patterns are based on a ribbed foundation, with the cable crosses worked on the columns of knit stitches bordered by purl stitches. Right-Twist Cable Rib Socks- In these socks, 1/1 cables travel across knit-4 ribs, giving the appearance of 2/2 cables without the draw-in. Cable Clock Socks- These socks show how just a little bit of cable can make an interesting design. Lace Patterns- Lace patterns can transform the common sock into a fancy or feminine accessory. Herringbone Lace Socks- These comfortable socks are worked with a relatively simple 6-stitch lace pattern around the leg and along the instep. Chevron Lace Socks- A simple 7-stitch chevron pattern forms tiny zigs and zags around the legs and down the sides of the insteps of these colorful socks. Cuff and Leg Variations- So far, all of the sock patterns in this book have had a crew shape with legs that begin about halfway down the calf. Picot Anklets- These anklets are a lot like short sport socks. Ruffle Cuff Anklets- These pretty socks are fashioned after those typically reserved for little girls. Knee Socks- A lace pattern extends along the leg and instep of these knee-high socks.
