Inspired by Peninsula Park in Portland, Oregon, these luxurious socks echo the rose garden lines and the curves of the stonework fountain with rich cables and gorgeous columns of twisted stitches. The toe-up construction promises fascination from cast-on to bind-off.

For accurate sizing, always take time to check finished gauge.

These socks are worked toe-up. The fabric on the leg biases slightly, which reduces the natural elasticity of the knitted fabric. To compensate for this, one may wish to use larger needles on the leg.
The invisible cast on recommended is the Turkish Cast On.
The start of the round on the leg is not static. It rotates around the leg as the pattern progresses.
The stitch patterns are both written and charted for your preference.
