Waffle Rib Socks

I keep forgetting to blog this yet another pair of socks based on Sensational Knitted Socks. For the past few weeks I've been going through a relaxing socks knitting phase, I think at least partially inspired by the otherwise stressful time in my life. Knitting easy socks with pretty yarn is therapeutic.

With these toe-up socks I wanted to try starting the stitch pattern from the tip of the toe, because I often wonder why the toe in knit socks is almost always the default stockinette stitch. I think I will be doing more of this in the future.

I used Araucania Ranco Solid for the yarn, and 2.25 mm circular needles by magic looping. As with other socks lately, I used Judy's Magic Cast-on and a short-row heel, my favorites. Knit with 64 stitches and a gauge of 8 stitches per inch.


  1. These socks are so pretty. I bought Sensational Knitted Socks 2 years ago, but I've never knitted socks! There are so many pretty patterns! When I read that it's even therapeutic, it makes me want to knit some even more!!!

  2. Those look soft and cozy. Love the color.
