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.
