I wanted to make a pair of chocolate brown socks for my new son-in-law, Frank, for Christmas, preferably with some kind of cable stitch in them. I just love this tiny little twisted stitch cable pattern. It’s super simple to remember, works up very quickly, and doesn’t require cable needles to cross them.

This pattern is written for knitting on 2 circular needles. It features a 2 by 2 ribbed cuff, a simple twisted stitch faux cable pattern in the leg, slip stitch heel, and standard toe shaping.
