Inspired by a wavy rib detail in a vintage stitch pattern book, I wondered: what would happen if Iknit the waves in the round, mirrored on one side and intersecting with themselves on the other? This remarkable sock was the result! The sock looks much more difficult than it actually is – you get five rounds of plain 2x2 rib in between the cable rounds. The waves themselves are only a 12-round repeat; the snaking cable off center on top of the foot makes up the few extra rows. All in all, the pattern is easily memorizable once you know what you are doing, and the effort pays off in the end with a delightfully squishy sock!
