Christie used one of my semi solid colours in Raspberry Cordial to knit this pattern but I think lots of my lovely colourways would suit this gorgeous lacey pattern. My Supreme Sock Yarns can be found here
Sometimes the yarn itself causes inspiration to strike and that was the case with the colour of this Raspberry Cordial yarn. Thoughts of lazy summer days with ice cream sundaes and ripply biscuit wafers popped into Christie's head and the Ripple Rib socks came into being.
The pattern starts with a gentle ripply cast on at the cuff and goes straight into a summery eyelet rib, perfectly comfortable and stylish for wearing in tennis shoes or with Mary Janes. The eyelet rib flows into a ribbed heel that hugs the back of the foot.
Pick a color reminiscent of your favourite ripple ice cream and enjoy knitting this easily memorisable lace pattern.
