Note: This pattern is currently available exclusively via Sweet Clement, at craft and knitting shows. It is also available online at Sweet Clement Yarns and Made by Loumms.

Requiring only a touch of the littel grey cells, this pattern is as logical as the characters that inspired it - and perhaps as knotty as the mysteries they seek to solve.

Intuitive yet challenging, the central cables that run down the front and back of the socks complement rather than mirror each other, while the twin cables that flank them work to provide a grounding sensibility should things start to seem too tough.

Pattern provides both charts and written instructions.

Designed for Sweet Clement Yarns, in Smitten.

Gauge over Miss Marple stitch pattern: 26 sts & 21 rows

Notes: All knit stitches, except on the wrong side (WS) of the heel, are knit through the back loop, which is what creates the raised effect of the cables. On the WS of the heel, the knit stitches are knit plain while the purl stitches are worked through the back loop, to continue the raised effect.
