Just curious what your favorite sock pattern is?

OMGoodness, why don't you say which is my favorite child?!
LOL, I forgot to even answer...LOL! I would have to say that I like designing socks as I knit them...as for some faves.... :?? I really enjoyed knitting my Leaves of Whimsy (http://www.divaknitting.com/store/index.php?main_page=document_product_info&cPath=60&products_id=234) socks because of the lace.
Then there's the very popular Cascading Leaves (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TownsendSocksKnitALong/files/) socks that can be found on the TownsendSocksKAL on Yahoo...I've knit several of these, and the list goes on and on and on.............I enjoy knitting socks that have a lace or cable pattern.

I'm such a creature of habit...I'm just a Sock Class (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm) girl. I love just being able to grab some yarn and go!

Occasionally I'll knit socks with more complex patterns, but really, one of the things I love about knitting socks is that they're so portable and require little concentration. Having to lug a pattern and pay attention to it really takes away from that for me. :roflhard:

Yep, I love silver's sock pattern too. When I wear socks, it's about the feel and the fit so those socks are perfect for me. :yay:

I like this for a basic, no-nonsense sock:

I use a fingering weight yarn, though, casting on 56, 60, or 64 sts (usually on size 2) depending on the wearer's size (I aim for 7.5-8 sts per inch). I also work the cuff and leg to a total of 7-8 inches, and make the toe a little more rounded, like "Joan's Favorite Toe", here:

My two favorites so far have been Becka's "Leaves of Whimsy" and the "Really Cool Socks".
