This is a MOCK (Mystery sock) designed for the Sock Knitters Anonymous group in November of 2017. The “clues” or steps in creating this sock will be released weekly on the 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd of November. Anyone is welcome to participate in the SKA knit-a-long, provided they read and follow the guidelines in the SKA group. Anyone at all is welcome to this pattern. I hope you enjoy the work.

Skill Level: Intermediate. There is a lot of cabling work, pre-strung beads, and several knitting charts to follow.

Materials: 350-400 yards of sock yarn and a multiple of 40 seed beads in a size appropriate for your yarn (see the info page for more details here). I recommend using a solid or mostly solid color to show off the cables, and a contrasting color of bead.

Needles: US1 (2.25mm) sock needles (or the size needed to obtain gauge). The pattern is written for both DPN style and Magic Loop style knitters, and it makes no difference what your preference is.

Tools: A cable needle (if you need one to work cables), measuring tape, scissors, and a tapestry needle

Sizing: The sock is not very elastic, and if in doubt, I recommend going up a size for more stretch. Small/Medium/Large/XLarge sizes measure approx. 8/9/10/11 inches in circumference and everything else is adjustable.

Oops! Errata!
In the Clue 2 chart, stitch #13, chart lines 5 & 6-- should be purls
