Using circular needle, cast on 78 stitches, place marker, and join in round. Work 6 rows in a ribbing, which goes like so:
Ribbing row: * (k1, p1) five times, k1, p2 *
Once your six ribbing rows are complete, it's time to move to the Tilting Ladder pattern, which comes from page 210 of Barbara G. Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. It also goes as follows (after being adapted for the round, of course):
Row 1: * k5, p1, k5, p2 *
Row 2: * k5, p1, k1, (yo, k2tog) twice, p2 *

Rows 3 & 5: * k4, p2, k5, p2 *
Row 4: * k4, p2, k1, (yo, k2tog) twice, p2 *
Row 6: * slide two stitches to cn and hold in back, k2, k2 from cn, p2, k1, (yo, k2tog) twice, p2 *
Rows 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12: repeat rows 3, 4, 5, and 6, then rows 3 & 4 again
