Adrienne is designed to show off the beauty of semi-solid yarns. The cuff features right and left twisted cables, which continue down the sides of the leg and travel across the instep, mirroring the arch shaping of the foot.
This pattern uses multiple stitch markers. While not a complicated sock to knit, you do have to keep track of quite a few stitch markers while shaping the arch and cables. I’m not a big fan of a ton of stitch markers but just didn’t see how else to keep track of arch stitches that move as well as cables that travel. A bit of disclosure here: I typically knit my socks using 5 double-point needles and arrange my stitches so I don’t have use so many stitch markers. If you choose to follow my lead, be sure to keep the markers for the arch shaping and the traveling cables on the instep.
