The intended zigzag rib that I mentioned in my previous entry, was far too complicated. The pattern had a repeat of 20 rounds! And I thought the wiggly bubble texture was a challenge!
I don't need any more mind benders with the reasons for 4-H judging classes needing my attention. The waffle rib is easy and brainless. The version I came up with that works for this weight yarn is for multiples of 3; knit 2, purl 1 for four rounds, then purl the 5th round. Repeat the 5 rounds. The stretch is enough to work through the leg portion of the sock. I need the give if I make my socks the standard 7 inches.
