Paper Chain Garland Socks are inspired by colorful self-striping yarn and the old-fashioned family fun activity of putting together a paper chain. Delicate slipped cables decorate the front of the socks. At the back two cables go up the sides of a pyramid heel and then meet in the middle. With practice, small cables like the ones here are easily done without a cable needle.
