Loops and swoops and cables, oh my! These are an awful lot of fun. Cables and double wrapped stitches combine to play some fancy tricks on the cuff and foot. The result is a lovely, textured fabric that does all sorts of fun things with variegated yarns.

The pattern comes in four sizes (56, 64, 72, and 80 stitch cast on) to fit most anyone. And of course you should feel free to adjust your gauge a bit to fine tune the fit of the sock. Just be sure that you’re working at a gauge that gives you a sturdy sock fabric with your chosen yarn. I recommend working at something around 7, 8, or 9 stitches per inch, and I’ve included a table to help you figure out what gauge you’ll want to use for the size you need.

These are perfect for you if:

  • You love cables and interesting textures
  • You have a multi-colored skein you need to tame

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)

A version of this pattern was initially released as the July 2013 installment of the Rockin’ Sock Club under the name Arkadiko.
