Easy Ribbed Socks

A sock with a lxl or 2x2 ribbed cuff and leg has a handsome look and a nice, snug fit. For this type of sock, you continue the rib as established until the sock measures 2V2 (3, 4, 5, 6) inches from the CO row for ankle socks or 4 (5, 6, 7, 8) inches for midcalf-length socks. Then you go to the heel directions.
