Aragorn, Strider, Wingfoot, Elessar. Ranger, warrior, healer, king.

This deceptively easy but bold lace and cable pattern is masculine enough for the Aragorn in your life, without being dull to knit. It looks great knit in a more feminine color too. It’s a perfect match for the Aragorn Scarf, Aragorn Fingerless Gloves and Aragorn Hat.

The sock is knit from the toe up utilizing an increased toe and a clever reversed gusset heel. Suitable for intermediate knitters, the pattern uses simple lace techniques and basic twisted stitches. You will need to know basic toe up sock techniques, in particular a toe up cast on. The heel instructions are included in the pattern. There is a accompanying tutorial on my blog that explains working the twisted stitches without a cable needle. Pattern instructions are written. No charts included at this time.

Special thanks to Colin Andersson for allowing me to modify his Andersson heel for this pattern. Thank you also to Tammy for the lovely photos, to Christa for the knitting the sample and to Ashley, the wonder editor, for her amazing tech editing skills.
