Anyone have a favorite free sock pattern that has some detail like a little cable or easy lace? Looking for something a step up from vanilla. Thank you!

If you like toe-up socks, try Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman.

This is easy and has a nice texture.

A friend gave me a simple mock cable pattern. It is 5 rows multiples of 4 stitches.

Sock with 60 or 64 stitches on dp or magic loop

Round 1 K 2 P 2 around
Round 2 K 1, YO, K 1 P2 around
Rounds 3 & 4 K 3 P2 around
Round 5 K 3 slip left needle into the first K stitch and carry it over the other 2 stitches P 2 around

Round 5 brings the first stitch over to give a sort of cable look without needing a cable needle. It is minimally fiddly. You can see the effect on the sock I am working on now.

This is a lace pattern I use a lot for top down socks....lacey & pretty....

Rnd 1..k1, p1, yo, ssk, p1
Rnd 2..k1, p1, k2, p1
Rnd 3 & 4...same as 2
If your st count (of the sock) is off from the lace pattern just add a few k sts to it....,

One of my favorites is the Skyp pattern. I usually just make a favorite basic pattern and incorporate the Skyp stitch pattern in it.

That SKYP stitch could be done top up or cuff down. I think I will try that on my next pair of socks. Thanks

I use 95% of the time the pattern from Eric, a KP member. His pattern fits perfectly my husband and son and all I need is the yarn and the needles and I am ready to go.

I often add a cable pattern up the top of the foot, then after I finish my heel turn I add up the back & front of my socks.....I use stitch markers and count out my stitches, I like to use at least 3 stitches either side of the cable and use seed stitch.....I have also picked out a pattern from my stitch dictionaries to use....many patterns don't show slot when using multi coloured sock Yarns, but it does leave a nice texture
