These cozy socks are knit up in Baby Cashmerino with an Angora cuff for thick warm socks that will keep you warm all winter. Yarn amounts needed are 2 (2, 3, 3) balls of Baby Cashmerino and 1 (1, 2, 2) balls of Joseph Galler Bellangor Angora. A suggested substitute angora yarn is shown below.
These socks are written for Baby Cashmerino which works up to 6 stitches per inch on US size 4 (3.5 mm) needles. So with the cables, the circumferences of the socks run about 7.5 (8.5, 10, 11) inches. The main reason the larger stitch counts are offered is so that the sock can easily be converted to fingering or sport-weight yarn. So if you choose a lighter weight yarn go with a stitch count that has worked for you in the past, keeping in mind that the cables snug things up a bit.
