Inspired by the book and television series, Outlander, this sock is designed to be a mix of both masculine and feminine while being modern and distinctly argyle.
Worked cuff down, this fun sock pattern uses cables and lace to create a contemporary argyle pattern down the front of the leg and on the top of the foot. The heel features an eye of partridge heel flap and half handkerchief heel. The sock ends with a wedge toe that is grafted closed with Kitchener stitch.
Instructions are given to knit socks in narrow, medium, wide and extra wide widths. Foot length is customizable.
