It’s hard to find that sweet spot between plain vanilla socks and a complicated pattern that requires intense focus—but this one fits the bill! Simple cables meander down the back of the leg, while a twisted moss stitch on the front tapers to the toe, keeping things interesting—once you’ve completed a few rounds you’ll be working from memory!
