Angler's Loop Socks
The Angler’s Loop is a sailor’s knot that forms a fixed loop. Inspired by my partner, Kasy, a man who loves a good cabled sock and a good solid boat, the Angler’s Loop Socks are inspired by the long tradition of sailor knots…and Kasy’s stories of life on a boat. 2X2 ribbing moves seamlessly into this knot cable panel along the back of the sock, giving enough ease in the leg to allow for taller socks with less need for numerous calf increases. An asymmetrical ribbed panel runs the length of the front, creating a space for additional cables or not, as the knitter sees fit.
While every effort has been made to write clear directions to knitting these socks, if you have never turned a heel and are completely new to socks it might help to read a bit about sock construction and gussets before casting on. Recommendations are found at the end of the pattern.
