Hourglass Rib Socks Free Knit Pattern


The waving cable pattern in Chrissy gardiner’s ribbed socks looks like stacked hourglasses or repeating Xs and Os. Either way you look at it, it makes a great pair of socks. The alpaca-blend yarn has a bit of a halo to soften the pattern while adding a luxurious feel. The socks are worked from the top down to the toe, with the ribbed pattern extending along the instep for a comfortable fit.
