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 youll 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 theyre 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.
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 (thats 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 Im 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.

Some random facts:
I am 31 years old, live in a small town in the Midwest (USA) across the street from a cornfield, and all most of the walls in my home are painted some version of brown. The ones that aren’t brown are a deep, cranberry red. I think coffee and dessert are the best foods ever! A day is never complete without both.
When I’m not dyeing, knitting or designing you might find me reading, brewing beer or watching a movie with my husband.
