Furlough is a cuff-down sock in two adult sizes with patterned heel flap and French toe that does not require grafting. The two socks are asymmetrical, featuring a staghorn cable and rib pattern on the first sock and a reverse staghorn cable and rib on the second. These socks will benefit from blocking as the pattern draws in significantly. The design is equally suitable for a man or woman. This pattern was originally published in Knitcircus Magazine #15, Fall 2011. GAUGE 34 stitches / 52 rows = 4in / 10cm in stockinette on #1 (1.25mm) needles SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Adult M[L].
