Thank you to everyone. I was able to donate $125 from the sale of just this one pattern! You are all wonderful!

RoRo’s are a cabled socks with a main cable on the front and a double twisting helix on the back flanked by increasing ribs on either side to accomodate the calf. This makes them ideal for anyone with a non-skinny leg as it allows the socks to come up over the widest part of the calf and not be stretched out. The rib keeps the socks gently snug. The socks are knit toe-up with a bit of ribbing at the top.

All the cables are fully charted with additional line-by-line instructions for each chart. This is a 7 page, very detailed pattern with 3 major and 2 supplementary charts! Helpful information such as how to know when to start your heel for any toe-up sock is included.

I designed these socks to work especially with self-striping yarns despite their complexity, but they will work well with any solid or gently variegated yarn.
