These densely cabled socks were inspired by the rugged rock of the Canadian Shield. The combination of simple and embedded cables is easily mastered by knitters with some cable experience.

The recommended yarn creates a casual sock with clear stitch definition. The pattern includes detailed instructions and cable charts. These socks are worked from the top down.

Skills/Techniques Required:
