Treehouse Socks

The Treehouse Socks are finally ready! Big hugs to my fabulous and patient testers Kala, Mirella, Therese, Jane and Grace for all of their suggestions.

These unisex socks feature four identical cables running down leg and instep, and are knit top down with a straightforward ribbed cuff and wedge toe.

The cable pattern is an 18 (20) stitch, 16 row repeat, and instructions are given for cabling without a cable needle. Charts and written instructions are provided.
Directions are for working with a set of 5 double-pointed needles, but can easily be adapted to the single or double circular needle method, using stitch markers where necessary.

PATTERN DETAILS
Gauge: 8 stitches and 11 rows = 1”/2.5cm in stockinette
Sizes: Medium (Large)
Foot/ankle circumference: 8 (9) inches/ 20.5 (23) centimeters

MATERIALS
Set of 5 double-pointed needles: US Size 1/2.25mm or size to get gauge
Approx. 400yd/ 365m light sport weight/ fingering-weight yarn, depending on size and length of foot (I used Panda Soy by Crystal Palace Yarns, 49% bamboo/33% soy/18% nylon)

$5.00 USD
