Basic Skills Necessary:

  • work in the round
  • read a cable chart
  • cables
  • increases
  • decreases
  • yarn over

Pattern Description:

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.

Gauge:

9 stitches and 12 rows = 1 inch in stockinette in the round

Materials:

  • 100 g sock yarn, Sample shown in Pagewood Farms Denali in Lime
  • US sz1/2.25mm, or size needed to obtain gauge, dpns or circulars
  • 3 stitch markers
  • cable needle
  • yarn needle for weaving in ends
