A complex combination of cable motifs. The front of the sock has a large cable motif. The sides and back of the sock are three repetitions of a much different, simpler motif. The sock is named in honor of Oscar Wilde’s character Algernon in the play, The Importance of Being Earnest.
Construction: Socks are knit top down. Pattern written so that either DPNs or circular needles can be used.
Size: Women’s medium. Sock size can be easily modified by varying the yarn and needle size.
Stitch instructions: charted.
Notions: Three stitch markers, and a cable needle. If you make cables without a needle, then you won’t need one – instructions for cable-needle-less cabling not included.
