Cables, Cables Everywhere!

Introducing Cables, Cables Everywhere!



I designed this pattern for the Knitting Central Sock Club. It was exclusive to the club for three months, and now it’s available to everyone!




I was so excited when Cynthia brought up the idea of a sock club with the staff designing the socks with their favorite hand-dyed sock yarns. Koigu is my absolute favorite sock yarn – soft and squishy, with great stitch definition, and gorgeous colors. Thinking fall was right around the corner, I wanted a sock with warmth and style. Cables always remind me of pulling on a favorite sweater and raking and jumping in piles of leaves in the fall; growing up in Connecticut gave me plenty of opportunities for that. I also wanted a ribbed style that would hug the foot in comfort and warmth. Koigu is dyed in many beautiful colorways, each skein a work of art in itself. I wanted cables, but not so many as to get lost in the colors. I chose an alternating pattern with only a few
cable twists set between ribs.




When knitting the sock, the cables don’t look like much. But once on the foot, the cables bloom and enhance the color changes. I have found my perfect sock for fall!


I do hope you all enjoy knitting these socks as much as I have enjoyed designing them.
