Wrought iron socks
NEW: A toe up version of this pattern has been added. One price, 2 versions = your choice!
The twisted stitches in this sock give the pattern its name, reflecting the intricacies of old-fashioned wrought iron. To counter-balance how the cabled stitches pull in the fabric slightly, the back of the sock is covered with a simple 4 stitch ribbed repeat. The ribbing is slightly cabled to complement the cabling on the front of the sock.
Sizes: The pattern instructions are provided for two sizes, womens medium (8.5") and large (10"). Where the instructions differ, the instructions for the large size are provided in brackets ( ).
The cables in this pattern are simple 1/1 cables.
