Honeycomb Cable (Cuff down)

from Louise Tilbrook Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Honeycomb Cable (Cuff down)
Honeycomb Cable (Cuff down)

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit socks from the cuff down
  • cable

Pattern Description:

A simple but striking Honeycomb cable runs along the front and back of these socks, adding detail without bulk and is complemented by an Eye of Partridge heel flap. The pattern is easy to memorise and mildly addictive, making them a rapid and fun knit. If you can cable without a cable needle this will add to the speed. If you've never tried this before, this would be an ideal project to begin with as the cables run across just two stitches and are more manageable without a cable needle than larger, bulkier cables.

This pattern is offered in two sizes: M (8" circumference) and L (9" circumference) and also as either a cuff-down version or a toe-up version. Please ensure you select the version you require.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Medium (8" circumference) or Large (9")

Materials:

  • 100g sock weight (fingering weight) yarn,

You Will Also Need:

  • 2.5mm long circular for magic loop or preferred method of small circumference knitting
  • cable needle (if required)

Suggested yarn:

400 yards of Fingering weight
