Buried Treasure Socks
I have wanted for a long time to make intensely cabled socks, and here they are… elegant socks with cables galore, plus a
“buried treasure” of glittering beads. The cables cause the leg to draw in more than usual, so the number of leg stitches has
been increased to compensate. These extra stitches are then decreased in the gusset with a special technique.
These socks were first published in Yarn Magazine Issue 8, November 2007.
This pattern is charted only.
Bead requirement: size 8/0 seed beads - approximately 226 (254) for medium (large) sock.
Error found in pattern on 4/22/10. The number of stitches after completing the heel and picking up stitches for the gusset should be 100 for the medium size, 112 for the large size. These extra stitches are then decreased in the gusset to the proper number of stitches for the foot.
Round 1 of Beaded Rib Pattern should read:
Rnd 1: (P3, k2) twice, p4, k2, p3, k2, p4, k1, p4, k1, repeat from to last st, p1.
