Wisps of ocean mist swirl and twist across waves and over rocks, just like the cable pattern in this pair of socks. Two of the cables continue to the toe, while the others fade into the heel, much like the ocean mist when it touches the shore. Inspired by the beautiful scenery around Vancouver Island, this pattern provides a relaxing, yet interesting knit. And everyone needs a pair of classic cable socks, especially at the coast.

This is a top-down sock pattern. Instructions are written for dpns. Pattern stitches are given in both written and charted instructions.

Size is women’s medium. Leg circumference and foot circumference are each approximately 8 inches. Foot length is adjustable. Will fit a women’s US foot size of 8 to 9. To make the sock larger or smaller, change needle size.

Knitting skills required: Cabling with a cable needle, basic sock knitting, kitchener stitch.
