Miss Margaret was created for Three Irish Girls and released May 2010. She is a cuff down sock with an easy to remember spiral stitch pattern. I’ve added beads for a little “bling” but she’s just as pretty without. The spiral pattern melts into a cabled heel flap and is framed by prettily cabled gussets for a great fit.

The pink sample is shown in Scarlett O’Hara by Yarn Love , colorway: Petal.

Intermediate difficulty: pattern assumes familiarity with cables and charts. Bead work is done using a small crochet hook, so you don’t have to pre-string the beads.

Materials:
β€’ 4 oz/410 yards fingering weight yarn. Shown in Yarn Love’s Scarlett O’ Hara. Color – Petal.
β€’ US size1 or 2.25 mm needles (2 circulars, 5 DPNS or 1 long circular for magic loop.)
β€’ Taspestry needle
β€’ Stitch markers (optional)

Extra notions:
β€’ Small gauge steel crochet hook – size 14
β€’ Seed beads size 6 or 8 (You will need 60-80 per sock depending upon how long you knit the cuff.)
β€’ 2 small cable needles (You may cable without cable needles if you prefer.)

Techniques:
β€’ Beading (explained in the pattern)
β€’ Cables
β€’ Short rows

Notes:
β€’ The heel flap, gusset, and instep st patterns are given as charts only for clarity.
β€’ You may pre-string the beads if you prefer.
