Scatterling \ˈska-tər-liŋ\ noun
- One who has no fixed habitation or residence; a wanderer
My family tends to venture far afield, but we come together when it counts. A few years ago, we reunited to celebrate my grandfather’s 90th birthday. These socks, with their wandering but interlocking cable, were designed for him.
This sock works at a range of gauges. It is shown in a thicker yarn at a gauge of 7.5 stitches per inch, but if you prefer to work with a thinner yarn at a gauge of 8.5 stitches per inch, you can. Just be sure that you’re working at a gauge that gives you a good, sturdy fabric in your chosen yarn.
At 7.5 stitches per inch, the sock will fit a foot or leg of 8.75, 10, or 11.25 inches. At 8.5 stitches per inch, the sock will fit a foot or leg of 7.75, 8.75, or 9.75 inches.
