Mock Cable Rib

For those of you who were asking, here's the instructions for the ribbing I used on the Xmas sock.

Mock Cable Rib:
Worked flat, over a multiple of 4 stitches +2.
Row 1: P2, *k2, p2; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2 & 4: K2, *p2, k2; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 3: P2, *skip first st and k into second stitch, then k into first and slip both off the needle, p2; repeat from * to end of row.

Worked in the round, over a multiple of 4 stitches.
Rounds 1, 2 and 4: *K2, p2; repeat from * to end of round.
Round 3: *Skip first stitch(leaving it in place on the needle) and k into second stitch, then k into first and slip both off the needle at the same time, p2; repeat from * to end of round.

It's sophisticated yet easy to work. Good for socks, mitten cuffs, or a flourish on the edging of a cabled sweater.
