Don’t be put off by the stitch pattern used in these socks, as it is the perfect antidote to cable phobia! Two stitches are crossed on the needles as you knit, creating a perfect cable twist without the use of a cable needle. The combination of cable twists and ribbing creates a dense, warm fabric. Tillington Socks are knitted from the cuff down in three sizes.

The stitch pattern is charted and has written instructions.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
