The main feature of these cuff down socks is a classy, yet elegant stitch pattern that resembles a cable pattern, but the effect is easily created with decreases and increases. The wide panels are worked on the front and the back of the socks and are reminiscent of stable pillars used for centuries in many architectural styles.

The socks are knit cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. The pattern is continued onto the heel flap.

The pattern includes three sizes: Women’s S, M and L to fit leg circumference 17.5 (20, 22.5) cm 7 (7.75, 8.75)”. Leg length including heel results in 19.55 (21, 21.5) cm 7.5 (8.25, 8.5)” when knit as given in the pattern. Leg length and foot length are adjustable.

You can choose to work the pattern either from the charts or the written instructions.

Material: 1 skein of fingering weight yarn with a yardage of approximately 400 m (440 yds) per 100 g.
Notions: 5 stitch markers, darning needle
