Inspired by Venus and Cupid, and celebrating love in its many forms, these socks feature side by side cables set into a panel—one elegant, elongated cable and one cherubic little cable. This is the ideal opportunity to try working cables without a cable needle. Included in the pattern are several techniques to intensify your romance with sock knitting, including an eye of partridge heel with a double gusset, a ribbed arch, and anatomically-shaped toes.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knit.
