Freshman Cabled Socks

It was a year ago now that Knitscene Fall 2009 hit the shelves with a sock pattern I designed...

Freshman Cabled Socks

I’m still really inspired by the way you can draw simple lines and geometric shapes with basic cables; the design happens from the placement of the cables, rather than the detail of the cable itself.

Freshman Cabled Socks

This project uses cables that are elongated and stacked in a spiraling, angular design. The left and right sock mirror each other for added interest.

I originally wanted these socks to be like your freshman year in a new endeavor… jump in and get started!

But maybe these are just socks to wear to the library. Either way. Many people actually call these library socks. (I'm looking at you Lucy Anne!)

I recently updated the pattern to include two sizes and information how to modify the pattern to make an in between size too. Yay!

Buy the new and improved pattern here for $5.50:

I loved knitting these socks for my husband. Simple enough to read a book at the same time, but with a regular bit of business to make you feel like you are making progress!
