I've found this pattern http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpomatomus.html
and I like it very much.
But since I'm a beginner I wouldn't dare try to knit socks yet, so I decided to do a small sample on regular needles.
I know circular pattern reads right to left. And if you do regular needles and a stockinette stitch then you alternate the rows of purls and knits.
Would it work if I read odd rows left to right and opposite (p to k and k to p)?
For example if a row reads k3 p3 yo k2tog p3, should I read it as
k3 p2tog yo k3 p3.
