Here is the pattern for this sock. I designed it myself. I don't know what to call it so.. Let's call it Loops after my Mom's fish.
I used well I can't remember what the name of the yarn is but it's a pima cotton blend.
A set of 4 dpn size 6 for the yarn. But you can use any yarn for this pattern. It adapts well.
6 sts= 1"
wyib= with yarn in back
Co 36 sts join in the round. ( 12-12-12 works the best for this pattern)
K2, P2 rib for 2"
