Don’t be frightened by this cabled design. it isn’t as complex as it looks, and once you’ve got going, you’ll find it quite intuitive. The back of the sock is ribbed, for a comfy fit, and so you only have to work the cabled design once.

The cables twist and cross like the brambles and briars surrounding the castle of a sleeping princess.

Two widths are provided in the pattern (9’’ and 10’’ circumference measured at the ball of the foot) and the socks can be knitted to the desired length.
