These textural socks were inspired by the beauty of wrought iron rails. The interaction of twisted stitches, cables and lace creates a sculptural yet surprisingly stretchy fabric.

These socks are worked from the cuff down. The pattern includes written instructions and charted stitch patterns. Options are provided for short and long leg lengths and for three foot lengths.

Skills/Techniques Required:

  • Basic sock knitting skills
  • Following charted stitch patterns
  • Cables
  • Grafting using kitchener stitch
