*Errata: Please note that I have just discovered an error in the pattern. During the layout, the instructions for the heel flap were located after the gusset instructions for the sock. Since this sock is worked top down, the heel flap needs to be worked followed by the gusset and heel turn instructions. Please work the instructions in this order:
Cuff - as written
Leg - as written
Heel Flap -
Work the Heel Flap Chart once.
The heel flap is worked over the 32 sts on the second needle and is knit flat (back and forth). For a clean flap edge, always slip the first st of the row purl-wise and knit the last st of the row.
Heel Turn - as written
Gusset - Work as written, omitting the instructions: Work the Heel Flap Chart once.
The heel flap is worked over the 32 sts on the second needle and is knit flat (back and forth). For a clean flap edge, always slip the first st of the row purl-wise and knit the last st of the row.
Instep - as written
Toe - as written
I apologize for the error and will send out a corrected pattern as soon as I can.*

A clever combination of simple cables and eyelets burst out from central points along this sock. The stitch pattern may look complex, but after a few rows you’ll fall into the rhythm of the stitches and hardly need the chart anymore. Grecian Goddess socks are knit from the top down with a ribbed flap heel and a pretty cable winding down over the leg and foot. And they’re a natural for cabling without a cable needle.

Due to the high level of detail, I recommend a low contrast sock yarn such as a solid or semi-solid. Avoid deeply saturated colors such as black and navy as they will obscure the cables.

Intermediate Difficulty: pattern assumes familiarity with cables, yarn overs, basic increases and decreases, and the ability to follow more than one chart simultaneously.

Note: due to complex stitch pattern, the instep, gussets, and back cuff pattern stitches are given as charts only.
