Fun 1x1 cables twist and turn to create a lattice that climbs up and down this gorgeous sock. Designed especially for Lilliput Yarn Simple Sock, an 80% Merino, 20% nylon fingering-weight yarn that is super-soft and has just the slightest halo, the Tiny Trellis socks are designed for four different sizes so you can make them for the whole family. Instructions are given for mirror-imaged right and left socks (though it doesn’t really matter which is which) – or you can choose to make your socks the same! A solid or semi-solid yarn will show off your cable work the best.
Difficulty: Intermediate. Skills include knitting in the round, shifting beginning of round to accommodate pattern, simple cables, grafting toe.
