This pattern was designed exclusively for the Fall 2011 Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat! I decided on a cabled sock pattern very befitting “Men Who Knit.” The playful intertwining between the braided plait and classic cables serve as a visual allegory of our tight brotherhood as male knitters—the ties that bind if you will. And let’s face it, a dude can never have enough hand knit socks!!!
