This delicate blend of semi-solid color on a luxurious yarn base needed something subtle but substantial to show off its gentle beauty. Enter a Saxony cable, looping and weaving in beautiful symmetry. These socks are worked from the toe up using either the Magic Loop or Two Circulars methods.

Finished Measurements and sizes
Women’s Medium (foot circumference of 8”/20.5cm; approximate shoe size of 6-9)
Women’s Large (foot circumference of 9”/23cm; approximate shoe size of 8-12)
Length is customizable to your preference.

This pattern uses the following techniques: Knitting, purling, cabling, raised increases, Judy’s Magic Cast-On, Jeny’s Super Stretchy Bind-Off, and Wrap & Turn for short rows. You must be able to read a chart to knit this pattern. This pattern is not recommended for double-pointed needles because of the size of the Saxony cable. I also do not recommend working the cables without a cable needle because of the fineness of the yarn.
