(from pattern) These socks are perfect for walking through the woods on a brisk spring afternoon, or relaxing at home while the spring showers rain down outside. The gently slanting cables in these socks remind me of bare branches becoming covered with a new growth of leaves, and nature’s landscape as it changes through the seasons. They are easy enough for those attempting cables for the first time, and are a good introduction to cables as it is easy to see exactly how the stitches are being rearranged.

Contructed cuff-down using one ball of Opal Uni 4 ply. Cable pattern is both written and charted.
