Originally inspired by Ikat textiles (though the finished design bears little resemblance!) these socks features two unique knit-on-knit cable patterns that keep things interesting. The final result may not look like a complicated space-dyed weaving, but it will still impress the recipient with clever interlocking cables that look like a fancy puzzlebox.
Pattern includes both charts and written line-by-line instructions, plus both US Standard and metric sizing.
Sample shown was knit using two skeins of Shibui Knits Sock in the color "Cranberry" .

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of "traditional" knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
