I do a couple inches of ribbing and then start the pattern. I find that cable patterns and other stitch designs make for a snug fitting sock and clings to the leg all the way down and eliminates sliding down.

I will either make a ribbed cuff and stockinette leg/foot or I will make a ribbed cuff and then a different rib (or whatever stitch pattern) all the way down the leg but also the top of the foot of the sock.

I made mine with ribbing all the way down to the ankle. They seem to stay up okay.

I do a small ribbing for about two inches, either a K1, P1, or lately I've been doing a five-stitch rib: P1, K2, P1, K1

Then I usually switch to a larger rib for the leg of the sock...something that will give a pattern but at the same time provide snugness. If I do a non-ribbed leg, I often decrease some stitches to increase the stay-up factor. I HATE saggy socks!!!!
