These comfy socks feature some intricate cabling. A nontraditional basket-weave design forms a traditional diamond shape on either side of mirror-image center cables. There are cable twists on every row, so this is a “pay attention as you knit” pattern. Suggested materials include 1/super fine yarn, 2 US size 0 (2mm) circular needles, 2 US size 1 (2.5mm) circular needles, and a cable needle. Fits sizes small (7"), medium (8"), and large (9") foot circumference.
