Adorable cabled socks that cuddle your feet in good old fashioned squishy-ness. A winter classic.

Difficulty: Easy
Yarn: Knitpicks “Essential” (50g, 231 yards)
Amount Needed: 2 skeins
Needles: 2.25mm, 1US
Gauge: 14 sts per inch in cable pattern
unstretched, 10 sts per inch in pattern stretched
Notions: yarn needle, scissors, cable needle

Notes: These socks are on the tighter side of sock gauge. While the purls between the cables do help the sock stretch when put on, you may want a looser gauge if you do not like snug fitting socks. If you work on dpn’s, like I do, you might want to set your round up so that each needle will end with purls and not with a cable. It’s a lot easier to work a cable when they are not the last stitches on the needle.
