Grecian Goddess Socks

from YarnLove
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Grecian Goddess Socks

Grecian Goddess Socks

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increases, decreases, short rows, picking up sts, working from a chart, basic lace, easy cables

Pattern Description:

A clever combination of simple cables and eyelets burst out from central points along this sock. The stitch pattern may look complex, but after a few rows you’ll fall into the rhythm of the stitches and hardly need the chart anymore. Grecian Goddess socks are knit from the top down with a ribbed flap heel and a pretty cable winding down over the leg and foot. And they’re a natural for cabling without a cable needle.

Due to the high level of detail, I recommend a low contrast sock yarn such as a solid or semi-solid. Avoid deeply saturated colors such as black and navy as they will obscure the cables.

Intermediate Difficulty:
Pattern assumes familiarity with cables, yarn overs, basic increases and decreases, and the ability to follow more than one chart simultaneously.

Due to complex stitch pattern, the instep, gussets, and back cuff pattern stitches are given as charts only.

About the Designer:
This pattern was dreamed up by a girl named Katie (that’s me!) I run a one-person yarn studio in the heart of the Midwest, where I dye yarn, design patterns, and knit/crochet into the wee hours of the morning. When I’m not wound up in yarn I enjoy reading (ok, I admit I mostly listen to audio books so I can knit at the same time!), watching movies with my family, and cooking.
