When I was invited to design an advanced sock pattern for the Yarn Crush box subscription, my fingers started itching to create cables. I sketched these out while visiting a place from my childhood: Jordan Street. With ropes and braids and asymmetrical elements (let no part of the sock remain stockinette!), these socks are a reminder that life’s path is not always easy or straightforward… but the results often have an astonishing beauty.

This pattern was originally part of the June 2018 Yarn Crush box. The printed version included in that box contained some errata.

If you have access to this pattern in your Ravelry library, you’ll find the file “Jordan Street Socks by Kino Knits, v.2” which is the most up-to-date version, with full written directions and charts and with all known errata corrected.
