For those of you who have already made Simple Skyp Socks, this pattern is more of a good thing. A deceptively simple stitch, the “skyp” lends texture and rhythm to these socks and mitts. The four-round pattern is easy to remember and the small change on round 4 creates a faux cable that is pretty without being fiddly to knit. Your finished socks or mitts will have a classic look with a modern twist. (Or should that be modern “skyp?”)
