Roper Rib Sock Pattern


This single pattern is available as a download.

For this pattern I used:

Yarn: One 100g ball of WYS Signature 4 ply (75% Wool (contains 35% British BlueFaced Leicester) 25% Nylon, 400m/437yds per 100g)

Metres: approx. 300m.

Needles: Set of four double pointed 2.5mm knitting needles.

Gauge (tension): 28 stitches and 38 rows to 10cm/4ins square over rib pattern using 2.5mm needles.

Size: to fit UK size 5 (or desired foot length as highlighted in the pattern.)

My design ideas and advice: These were designed for a gentleman who requested a 2×2 rib sock.  I also love 2×2 rib so I was more than happy to oblige!  There are great for men and women. I love the little details and so I played around with how the 2×2 rib merged into the stocking stitch at the shape instep. I played around with several ideas before I decided on the one in the pattern. It makes me smile! If you look closely you can see it on the image or pop into the studio to see the socks!
