Featuring Frabjous Fibers' Wonderland Cheshire Cat yarn!
With the arrival of autumn, a little extra coverage isn't going to hurt. This month, we bring you a stylish and attractive pair of beautifully cabled knee socks. Worried about sizing? Don't be. Amy's engineering background shines thru with separate sizing for the foot and the leg! You will definitely want to knit these awesome socks!
Frabjous Fibers' Wonderland Yarns Logo
by Amy Loberg
This dramatic toe-up knee-sock pattern sports a beautifully nested cable on the front. The nested cable features a small, narrow cable that runnings up the center of a longer, broader cable. Around the sides, there are a series of small cables and ribs until you get to the center back of the leg. There, calf shaping is accomplished with a beautifully branched rib pattern that varies depending on selected calf size.
Amy was thoughtful enough to include sizing for the foot and the leg separately, so regardless of your shape, you can knit these gorgeous socks with confidence. How, you ask? At the ankle, there are the same number of stitches in all sizes. By switching needle size at that point, you can work at a completely different gauge for the leg than you did for the foot.
