Based on my Jacques Cousteau shawl pattern, these highly textured socks work up beautifully with lots of details. A patterned band makes up the cuff and a matching band at the toe. In between there is a section of several cabled/textured stitches reminiscent of a fisherman’s sweater. These symmetrical socks are worked cuff-down, but could easily be converted to toe-up if that’s what you like. They could also easily be worked two-at-a-time.
