Barbara Socks is a cuff-down cabled sock pattern. They feature a cozy mirrored cable pattern on the front of the leg and top of the foot, with wide ribbing on the back of the leg and a stockinette sole. They have a slipped stitch heel flap that continues the ribbed pattern from the leg and a gusset for a great fit.

They come in just two sizes, but the stretchy ribbing makes them fit a wide range of foot sizes.
