If you have a thing for cables, you will definitely enjoy this pattern, which looks way more complicated than it is.

The sock has a four strand braid across the top of the leg/foot, two twists along the sides and one twist along the back of the leg all the way down to the gusset heel.

That’s why this sock doesn’t even need a fancy speckled yarn to stand out!

The heel has a flap and a gusset, which makes it very easy to knit.

The length of the leg can be adjusted, since the cuff is elastic enough to fit around the ankle and the calf.

The twist along the back of the sock is a my favorite detail about this pattern.

The yarn that I used is my own hand dyed sock yarn, so you will need a skein of 4-ply standard sock yarn to knit these socks.

The pattern is written for socks in the size 37 (US 6) but there are also instructions included on how to knit the socks in other sizes (EU 36-47).

You will however need to cast on 72 or 80 stitches! Keep in mind that cables tend to make socks a lot narrower, that’s why I casted on 72 stitches on 2.5 mm needles instead of my usual 60 stitches.
