You can never have too many handknit socks, in my opinion. And what fits better than a good ol' pair of ribbed socks? Nothing. They're the kind of socks you'd get the most wear out of but they can be sooo boring to knit.

Here's a way to elevate the basic ribbed sock — and keep your interest while knitting them: the Wolfberry socks.

Wolfberry socks are easy to knit and comfortable to wear which makes them the perfect sock drawer staple. These fingering-weight socks are knit from the toe up. They're made with easy ribbing and a cute lace panel going up the outside of the foot and leg.

If you've never done lace socks before, this would be a great place to start. The lace pattern has only eight rows... and half of them are plain knit rows. Once you've done one repeat of the stitch pattern, you've pretty much memorized the rest of the sock.

Right and left socks are mirror images of each other and the lace panels differ slightly from one another. But the difference is only one stitch in the entire repeat. And as always, my patterns come with both written and charted instructions for the stitch patterns.

The backs of the socks are just plain two-by-two ribbing which makes a wonderfully stretchy, comfortable, and foot-hugging fabric. The socks end with a short cuff, also in two-by-two rib.

The pattern comes in two sizes: 64 and 72 stitches. To top that off, you can easily make custom-sized socks that fit your foot measurements. You can fully adjust the foot length and start gusset increases any time you want. Leg length is adjustable within pattern — meaning you can knit any number of full lace repeats you want.

Wolfberry is now available on Ravelry.

I'd love to see your version of the socks! Share your project on social media with the hashtags #wolfberrysocks and #talviknits.
