When I first started knitting, I thought cables were incredibly scary. Lacework didn’t intimidate me, but cables were this technique that I looked at in awe.
I did eventually overcome my fear and discovered that they aren’t actually that scary after all. Flexuous was the design that helped me overcome my fear of cabling without a cable needle- all of those tiny crossed stitches really helped.

This is a top-down sock with the ribbing customised to enable the design the flow seamlessly. In addition, the cables are mirrored on each side to enable the design to be perfectly symmetrical
