I love the look of cables mixed with lace, especially for socks. These cables are not difficult, but they can be a bit fiddly to work in finer sock weight yarn. Alternating the direction of the cables creates lovely undulating columns. The cable pattern pulls in a good bit on the cuff, so make sure you pay attention to sizing, or work the cuff in a larger needle size if you are worried about it being too snug. These socks are worked from the cuff down, with a tubular cast on leading into the 1x1 ribbing. Two sizes are included.

To fit adult 7–8 (8–9)” circumference.
