Walking With Emma is a collection of eight socks in classic cables & ribs. If knit with a rustic wool they are the quintessence of country socks, and so befitting of wandering in the rural spaces, as I have with my dog Emma! And if made with fine to very-fine yarn, these socks can be as elegant as any occasion could ask for. Four classic cables in a progression of 1/1, 2/1, and two variations of 2/2 cable cross, as well as four plain ribbed variations, making eight ways to knit a sock! Six sizes to fit men, women, teens & kids. Knit cuff to toe, with suggestions for classic sock contrasts. Pattern includes a gauge substitution chart so that you can use several weights of your favorite yarns, from rustic hand-spun to fine fingering, and even lace weight!
Classic heel & toe, and for the sock experienced, this pattern should be easy to switch out for your favorite heel or toe style.
