Note: this pattern is also available from Harlequin Yarns (dot com), free with any 100g sock yarn purchase. Just leave a comment with your order!
This design is made up of travelling stitches (one-stitch cables) that spiral continuously around on a stockinette background. There are 4 cables going one way that are worked every round, and 8 cables going the other way worked every second round. No cable needle is required.
Despite the fact that they are spirals, the cables ultimately produce a slightly irregular diamond pattern, resembling the surface of the famous Dutch toffee-waffles, or ‘Stroopwafels’.
