Moonlit Sky socks have a gorgeous panel of slip-stitch cables running down the front of the sock and a double-folded cuff for extra coziness. The socks are knit cuff-down and feature a heelflap and gusset. The yarn used in the pattern is a special 100 % wool yarn spun to be durable on socks as well. Note, that due to the yarn the gauge is purposefully tight, so be sure to choose a small enough needle. The pattern is written for magic loop, but can be worked with dpns as well. The front panel is both charted and written in the English version and charted in the Finnish version.
