The lace and cables remind me of the soothing patterns made in the sand of a Japanese Tea Garden. May you find a relaxing moment in your day to enjoy "Zen Garden."
Knit cuff-down with a hemmed picot cast-on, heel flap/gussett, and wedge toe. The cables continue down to border the heel flap. There are instructions on mirroring the pattern on each foot.
Both written and charted instructions provided.
The original sock was knit with Claudia Hand Painted which has low yardage. If your foot is longer than 9 1/2" or if you need to knit a larger sock, you will need 3 skeins of yarn instead of 2. If you use a different yarn with more yardage, you should be able to knit the socks with 100 grams.
Size of sock can get adjusted by knitting with a needle ONE size smaller or larger to obtain a different gauge.
