Moderato is a toe up seed stitch sock with a guitar pattern knit in cabled relief across the instep. Instructions are written to be worked on a long circular needle with the magic loop technique, but you could knit these socks with two circulars or on double pointed needles. Because the wraps can't be seen easily in the seed stitch patterning, there is no need to pick up the wraps.
