Lerwick is a fully cabled sock that features an argyle inspired cable panel starting at the top of the leg and continuing down to the toe of the sock. The back of the leg features cabled ribbing. The heel is uniquely constructed; the heel flap and gussets are worked simultaneously which allows for the cable pattern to continue on the heel flap and the gussets. The sock finishes with a rounded toe that is grafted closed using Kitchener stitch.

The many, many cables in this design result in a dense fabric that doesn’t have a lot of stretch. You may want to make a circumference larger than you normally would. The cables are also yarn-eaters! If you are knitting for large feet, you may want to have some extra yarn on hand, just in case!
