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.

Note:
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.
