Toasty Twirl Socks
Adding a fun little twirl to an otherwise nice straightforward sock, this cable motif gives a little something to keep you interested while still allowing all those gorgeous yarn speckles and colours to shine through.
A full and clearly written pattern for a plain sock with a simple cable detail, including stitch abbreviations, knitting charts, a photo tutorial for the cable and links to helpful tutorials.
Help given for working cables. Previous experience in making socks may be useful.
