These beautiful cable and bead socks are simple to knit yet stunning to look at! New to beading with a cable needle? Fear not there are tutorials included in the pattern. (Be warned though, once you start you will be adding beads to all your projects!)

Not a fan of beads? Simply omit the beads and you will still have yourself a pair of very pretty socks.

To knit these socks, you will need to be familiar with top down socks construction with a heel flap.
Be able to;
sl 1 - slip next stitch purlwise
ktbl -knit next st through back loop, twisting stitch
ssk - slip 1, slip 1, knit these 2 slipped sts together
k2tog - knit next two stitches together to decrease one stitch
yo - yarn over
CDD - slip next two stitches together as if to knit, knit next stitch, pass slipped sts over

Pattern Notes:
The pattern uses the crochet hook method of apply beads. (Beads can easily be omitted from this design).
Sizing Notes:
The large cables make the sock a snug fit, if you are between sizes in the chart below, I suggest you opt for the larger size.
To choose the best fit, measure the foot around the widest point of the foot and knit the size closest to the ‘to fit foot circumference’ size.

Finished foot circumference: 18.5 cm / 7.25 in (20 cm / 8 in, 21.5 cm / 8.5 in, 23 cm / 9 in)
To fit foot circumference: 20 cm / 8 in (21.5 cm / 8.5 in, 23 cm / 9 in, 24.5 cm / 9.5 in)

I would love to see your finished projects…
