Scatterling 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.

The pattern comes in three sizes (60, 68, and 76 stitch cast on) to fit most anyone. And of course you should feel free to adjust your gauge a bit to fine tune the fit of the sock. Just be sure that you’re working at a gauge that gives you a sturdy sock fabric with your chosen yarn. I recommend working at something around 7, 8, or 9 stitches per inch, and I’ve included a table to help you figure out what gauge you’ll want to use for the size you need.

These are perfect for you if:

  • You love dramatic cables
  • You want a very tidy gusset and toe

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
