It’s hard to find that sweet spot between plain vanilla socks and a complicated pattern that requires intense focus—but this one fits the bill! Simple cables meander down the back of the leg, while a twisted moss stitch on the front tapers to the toe, keeping things interesting—once you’ve completed a few rounds you’ll be working from memory!
These socks were originally designed for my husband to wear on our wedding day. While designed with a man in mind, the cables and textured stitches create a clean look, suitable for men and women alike.
