Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting, purling, cabling, slipped stitches, pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

I love cables! I love them on sweaters and scarves and berets and gloves, but most of all I love them on socks!

When I fell in love with a pattern that used slightly larger cables with a partridge stitch heel and then discovered that the pattern was no longer available anywhere and that the designer wasn't taking requests, I decided to write my own pattern with more compact cabling, plus a personal and unique touch to the heel.

Since it seems rare that sock knitters knit two-at-a-time as I do, I've written this pattern with instructions for BOTH single-sock construction and two-at-a-time construction. This is a top-down, no fear pattern with written instructions and charts for legs and heels.

If you love cabling as much as I do, you will love these socks!
