Fool your feet into thinking your socks are more complex than they really are! Frost Asters uses simple techniques to create cables that look difficult but are actually a snap. The ideal showcase for multi-colored yarns--or knit a pair in a solid to really show off the cables.

Construction Notes
These socks are worked from the cuff to the toe with small faux cables in the ribbing and wider ones on the sides. The large cables travel down the foot and join in a point over the toe.
