Spare me the Damsels in Distress. Give me a tough woman like Aethelflaed of Mercia, who was brave enough to fight the Vikings AND win!

It features a slimmed down version of the Saxon Cable, with twisted stitches to make the design pop. The interwoven panel runs down the leg and the side of the foot. The remainder of the sock is done in a simple rib, making the sock practical as well as pretty. It is a mirrored design.

It is shown in a glorious red colorway created by Meadowlake Arts especially for this design. One skein was enough to make the Large, with leftovers. When choosing your yarn, look for a solid, semisolid, or tonal colorway.

Errata: on the heel turn, the first row should end p2tog, p1. The pdf has amended to correct the error.
