Yoga Socks

I finished the yoga socks, really cool. Will try these out this winter when the house is chilly :-)
The pattern was a free one from Michael's, a friend gave me the pattern with the yarn. But searching on the Michael's web site I could not find the pattern online so I am going to type it out here in case anyone wants to try them:

Gauge: 28 sts and 36 rows = 4 inches in stocking st.

Cast on 64 stitches loosely. Divide into (20,20,24) sts on 3 needles, join in round. Place marker on first st for beg on rnd.

Work 10 rnds in (K1 P1) ribbing
1st round: knit
2nd round: *K1, P3. Rep from * around
3rd and 4th rounds: As 1st and 2nd rounds
5th round: Knit
6th round: *P2 K1 P1. Repeat from * around
7th and 8th rounds: as 5th and 6th rounds.

Repeat last 8 rounds for texture pattern until work from beg measures approx 4 inches, ending a 4th or 8th round of pattern.
