I love cables. The twists and turns and angles are just the thing I need to keep my interest as I’m working a sock. Sure, a plain sock will capture my interest once in a while, but give me a cabled sock to keep me entertained! This sock is the best of both worlds with plenty of stockinette around the cable panel. It’s the kind of sock that will keep you thinking “just one more row.”

This sock is a good way to learn a slightly more advanced cable and a good introduction to charts as well.

This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice knitter to an advanced knitter and all those in between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
