This beautiful, toe-up, cabled sock was inspired by Sam McBratney’s classic children’s story, Guess How Much I Love You. It was created for a Little Skein in the Big Wool limited edition kit (2014).

Sizes available: The pattern features a wonderful array of sizes, from toddler to adult extra-large, so that you can knit these socks for the Little and Big Nutbrown Hares in your life, and every size in between.

Yarn: The socks were designed using Must Stash Yarn Perfect Sock, which is the perfect blend of softness and strength. Little Skein’s kits included a skein of this beautiful, hand-dyed yarn, but you can use any favorite fingering weight sock yarn.

HEEL: Spacious OMG heel

Skills needed: To knit these socks, you will need to:

  • Be familiar with sock construction or be an adventurous beginner
  • Read a chart
  • Cable stitches (with or without a cable needle)

The traveling cable pattern is easy to follow, and for intermediate sock knitters, the pattern will be a breeze.

The pattern has been written for two circular needles, but it can be easily adapted to other sock knitting techniques such as magic loop or double-pointed needles. Feel free to use the method with which you are most comfortable.

The pattern was tech-edited by Elizabeth Green Musselman of Dark Matter Knits.
