The Khloe Socks have arrived. Pattern written, tested, and doubly approved by my test knitters.
The Khloe socks were born out of a desire to play with crossed stitches. The spiraled ribbing is easily accomplished by “twisting” two stitches to create a “mini cable”. I love the way that the mini cables give dimension to an otherwise plain rib.
This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice knitter.
