The name for this cabled sock comes from the September challenge in Sock Knitters Anonymous on Ravelry. The challenge was to knit a pair of socks in Chartreuse. There was a ton of discussion about exactly what color is chartreuse. I think this cable pattern with its wraps and knots sums up that discussion nicely.
The sock is knit cuff down, has a patterned heel, gusset decreases on the sole, and a wedge toe.
There are lots of cables in this pattern. For most of the pattern, there are cables on every row. I worked the narrower cables without a cable needle and used a cable needle for the 4 over 2 cables. Because there are cables on every row, it will be easier to work the cables if you focus on knitting those sts a little bit looser than normal.
9 stitches and 12 rows = 1 inch in stockinette in the round
I have been doing some type of needle craft for as long as I can remember. When I was really little, it was crochet and embroidery. I finally learned how to knit in high school and really took off with it in college. Now I am designing my own patterns. I love intricate yet intuitive designs, so expect a lot of lace, cables, and colorwork in my patterns.
