Inspired by the catch-phrase of The Doctor’s wife, River Song, this fun sock pattern uses mosaic knitting and cables to create the Hello, Sweetie! stitch pattern on the leg and foot of the socks.
Slipped stitches are used to create the colourwork pattern. There is no stranded colourwork and each row is knit using only one colour.
This sock features a short row heel that does not interrupt the alternating stripe of the pattern.
Instructions are given to knit socks in narrow, medium, wide and extra wide widths. Foot length is customizable.
