I’ve uploaded a printable pdf of the pattern, including all errata, and my original charts. No more pasting pages together for the large chart, Yay!

From the pattern description:

“The branching cables in the design are inspired by the intricate braided designs in Celtic and medieval illuminated manuscripts. All the cables of the main pattern branch off from one beginning, but end in different points throughout the pattern. Since the back of the leg was feeling sparse, I added a small branching medallion on the back, to keep interest from both the front and the back. There’s plenty of cabling to be had here, and it’s important to keep a close eye on which direction the cable should be crossing as the cables start to pile up, however it’s all basic two over two cabling.

All the cables make a nice thick padding on the top, perfect for keeping your feet warm during the cold winter months. Combined with the soft warmth of cashmere in the Casbah yarn, your feet will be toasty and happy until spring rolls around. Don’t let the cashmere content scare you away from this yarn, it’s still machine washable.”

An alternate yarn choice given is Interlacements Tiny Toes, two 185-yard skeins.
