Pattern Description:

The Woodcutter's Daughter is knit in the round, from the toe up. It's a Tube Sock so there is no heel to turn, no gussets to make.

The pretty Cable pattern that runs up the center of the socks creates a natural "shaping" to the sock. The cable twists occur at the ankle to help shape the foot and then the proceeding cable twists help further shape the calf.

These would also be adorable with suede or felt soles sewn to the bottoms.

Each sock only takes a few hours to complete, making this the perfect lazy weekend project.

I charted both socks as they have mirroring cables. The pattern is both written and charted.

The pattern is written for an average sized foot. Size US Teen/Women's6-10. The pattern is easily adaptable for other sizes.
