For the sock class I am teaching I didn’t want to do the boring ol’ ribbing for 2″ then stockinette sport weight socks. So I bought some 6/0 beads last night in a teal color and used them to do this:
Keeping the front of the sock in 2×2 rib I decided to do the back with a simple 2 stitch twisted cable every 4th row with a bead. Clog sock heels really. From the front all boring & blah but on the back, wham! All kinds of busy-ness happening! At first I thought it was just too much but now I am really liking how crazy it all looks together. Only half an inch more on the legs then to the boring stockinette foot.
