Spruce Cable Socks Pattern

The Spruce Cable socks pattern was inspired by walking through the forests of B.C. The Sitka Spruce is a native evergreen tree species in B.C. I can always spot a spruce in the forest by the scales on the bark and the stiff green needles.

Yarn
Yarn support for this design was generously provided by Marissa of Rocky Mountain Yarn Co.
