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!

As a knitter with 3 decades of knitting passion, I am awed and inspired by the creative processes of knitting, spinning, designing, and dying--all an experiment with color and imagination--to make each product a one-of-a-kind creation. My patterns are the product of knitting to meet the needs of friends and family and, of course, myself. I know you will love them as much as I do!
