Sizes are designed to fit feet that are 8in (small), 9in (Medium) and 10in (Large) in circumference around the ball of the foot.

One skein of specified yarn used.

Crossed Wires features an intricate mesh of twisted-stitch cables, that crosse over each other as they wend their way down from the cuff to the heel flap. The rest of the sock is knitted in plain stocking stitch, to better highlight all the fun that is happening around the back.

Cabled section is fully charted, and the rest of the pattern is written out.

These socks feature a slip-stitch heel, modified to fit the flow of the pattern, and a slip-stitch toe, for better wear-and-tear resistance.
