It is said that many of the stitches used in Aran knitting are lucky symbols for the wearer. For instance, diamonds represent wealth and success; cables are for strength, safety, and luck. This pattern incorporates such traditional designs into extra-cozy hiking socks loaded with good omens for the new year. Knit in worsted weight at a tight gauge, they are a great quick-knit for men or women.

This reformatted and re-edited pattern is now available for sale in the Katherine Vaughan Designs Ravelry store.

Note that an error was found in the heel turn in the re-editing process. If you have the KnitCircus version and would like the new one gifted to you, please PM the designer with the instructions for Row 1 of the heel turn as given in your version.
