When I was invited to design an advanced sock pattern for the Yarn Crush box subscription, my fingers started itching to create cables. I sketched these out while visiting a place from my childhood: Jordan Street. With ropes and braids and asymmetrical elements (let no part of the sock remain stockinette!), these socks are a reminder that life’s path is not always easy or straightforward… but the results often have an astonishing beauty.
