Item name: Faux Cable Socks
Designer: Jane Prater
Yarn Information: Noro Silk Garden in #304
For sizes: Adult Woman
Amounts: 2 skeins (for matching stripe pattern, otherwise one is enough)
The coolest part of these sock is the effect the long repeat color found in Noro yarn. I think they invented it, but other yarns exist, especially in this world of independent hand dyers. The faux cable cuff pattern is easy to learn, so you can go Zen while knitting these. The wrap around arch (so comfy) is more complex, but if you place the markers, it is almost Zen.
Special tip: I try mine on when I finish the arch to see exactly how much more to knit before I start my toe.
Here are my photos of the finished pair.
I’m told the issue will be out June 3.
