Pattern Details

With strong lines from twisted stitches and textured columns, these beautiful socks feature a cabled clock at the ankle and an innovative short row heel that fits higher insteps easily. These socks are knit in the round from the cuff down to the heel. A few stitches are increased at the base of the cuff, then the Shadow Wrap short row heel is worked with right- and wrong-side rows. Two stitches are picked up at the join between heel and instep to ensure a gap-free ankle, and then work is rejoined in the round and the gusset is decreased (also decreasing out the extra stitches needed for the cabled cuff. The foot is worked even until it measures approximately 1.75 [2, 2.25] inches 4.5 [5, 5.75]cm short of total foot length and then the toe is decreased. Live stitches are then grafted together to close the toe using kitchener stitch. Yarn: 310 [350, 390] yards of heavy fingering weight sock yarn. Sample in Dragongfly Fibers Dragon Sock (100% Superwash Merino, 390 yds/4 oz). Shown in “Hidcote Gardens”. Gauge: 16 sts & 24 rounds = 2 inches (5cm) square in Stockinette in larger needle. Notions: 2 stitch markers (4 if working two socks at a time), tapestry needle to weave in ends, cable needle. Needles: 2.5mm (US1.5) needle(s) or size needed to obtain gauge.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls. I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
