Low Tide is a simple cuff-down sock with a cable pattern creating two waves on either side of a cable twist in the center of the sock. Just like the low tide waves at the ocean, they seem like they want to touch, but they never do.
The pattern is written for DPNs referring to Needles 1-4. You can accommodate it for Magic Loop or 2 circulars.
NOTIONS: Stitch marker (Optional), tapestry needle for weaving ends. Cable needle.
PATTERN STYLE: The pattern contains written as well as chart instructions. There is a key and full abbreviation list included as well.
DIFFICULTY: Advanced Beginner. Easy cables for a beginner.
YARN: This pattern is better suited for solid or lightly tonal yarn to show off the detail of the mock cables. They may get lost in a heavy variegated yarn, but a subtle variegation should be okay. I did the sample in the stripes and the pattern was still visible.
