The Arcane Socks are a cabled and lace stitch pattern that works with even the most busy variegated yarns and still not fade into the background.

These socks are named for the equine love of my life, Arcane. Arcane is always game for a ride and loves to do whatever you ask of him. This stitch pattern is down for whatever type of yarn you want to pair it with and still look great.
