The name for this cabled sock comes from the September challenge in Sock Knitters Anonymous on Ravelry. The challenge was to knit a pair of socks in Chartreuse. There was a ton of discussion about exactly what color is chartreuse. I think this cable pattern with its wraps and knots sums up that
discussion nicely.
The sock is knit cuff down, has a patterned heel, gusset decreases on the sole, and a wedge toe.

Small, [Medium, Large] 6[7, 8.25] inches unstretched circumference around instep
15.2[17.8, 21] cm unstretched circumference around instep

The small uses 68 sts. Medium uses 76. Large uses 88.

• 100 g sock yarn, Sample shown in Pagewood Farms Denali in Lime
• US sz1/2.25mm, or size needed to obtain gauge, dpns or circulars
• 3 stitch markers
• cable needle
• yarn needle

There are lots of cables in this pattern. For most of the pattern, there are cables on every row. I worked the narrower cables without a cable needle and used a cable needle for the 4 over 2 cables. Because there are cables on every row, it will be easier to work the cables if you focus on knitting those sts a little bit looser than normal.
