It is said that many of the stitches used in Aran knitting are lucky symbols for the wearer. For instance, diamonds represent wealth and success; cables are for strength, safety, and luck. This pattern incorporates such traditional designs into extra-cozy hiking socks loaded with good omens for the new year. Knit in worsted weight at a tight gauge, they are a great quick-knit for men or women.
21 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch
