The pattern is Simple Skyp Socks by Adrienne Ku, and it’s a free pattern on Ravelry. It’s fabulously easy with a wonderful variation to the old k2p2 rib I’ve been doing. In fact, I doubt I’ll ever do a the basic rib again.
I knit them in Malabrigo sock yarn, 100% merino in Tomato. Love, love, love this yarn. I’m nearly certain this yarn will become my go-to sock yarn after I work through my stash. It’s just so wonderfully squishy and soft. Seriously satisfies my tactile desires.
I’m not sure why I ever bought this yarn as the colors are a little “muddy” for me. I think I must have had my husband in mind, but in the light, there’s a little more corally pink than I would think he’d prefer. Anyway, I don’t love the colors as represented in the ball of yarn, but I’m kinda digging the way it’s knitting up (even though the grouchy 14-year-old says “ugly” every time I try to engage her).
