His 'n' Hers Undulating Ribs


I started my Undulating Rib socks over on smaller needles because the fabric I was getting was too loose. And now they fit and feel great. I also decided, why not make a pair for my boyfriend, too? This decision came about because I had to go to WEBS to get the smaller needles and saw some brown Trekking XXL there that has perfect colors for him. Mine--the red ones--are Regia 4-ply. I like his yarn just a little better, because it's softer.

This is a really nice pattern--not so boring as plain stockinette, but not so complicated that you have to constantly refer to the chart. It's a good "walk and knit" sock pattern. I worked on them while walking on the rail trail yesterday--it was in the 60s!

They do look great! Love that you're knitting two pairs at once - especially while walking!
