Marlinspike was originally designed as the June sock for the MacKintosh Yarns sock club 08/09.
The name Marlinspike is referring to marlinspike seamanship or rope work.
The pattern is named for the many small ropelike cables running down the sock. It is meant as a unisex sock, where the cables will peak out over the shoe, but not be too overpowering.
