Product details

Tread lightly, for here be cables! Lots of cables!

These socks were named in honor of a dear Ravelry friend (that would be [cablefreak] (person)) who loves cabled socks. When I showed her the pattern photos, she immediately saw the resemblance to tire treads in the zig-zagging cables on the front, and the V-shaped cables on the back of the sock. This makes the socks doubly fitting to be named in her honor, as she's a mechanic.

These socks will require a bit of attention but it's quite easy to get into the rhythm of the cables. There are rest rows on the front and back of the sock, but these don't always coincide so you'll be cabling often. Sharp-tipped needles are recommended for easier cabling.

Sizes: The pattern instructions are provided for 3 sizes: medium (8”), large (9”), and extra large (10"). Where the instructions differ, the instructions for the large size are provided in brackets ( ).
