This pattern is available on KnitPicks for $2.99. I offer it here for knitters who prefer to buy on rav. The price is slightly higher to cover fees.

The sinuous twisted-stitch cables that undulate around the leg and instep of these socks evoke the roller coasters at my favorite family amusement park: Canobie Lake Park. They are top-down socks with a traditional heel-flap and gusset. The cable pattern is unbroken around the leg and continues seamlessly into a ribbed heel and twines over the instep to the toe.

Because of the complex cables, this sock is not easily re-sized by changing the stitch count. Rather, the knitter is advised to go up or down a needle size to achieve a different leg circumference.

Knitters who prefer charts may print pages 2-4; knitters who prefer written directions may print pages 2 and 5-6.
