Luise O'Neill

for Impeccable Knits   2011

Padua Cable Socks (Cuff Down)

Another pattern in O'Neill's clever 'plain foot' socks. This one sports a simple yet interesting braid and rope cable combination; the two mirrored cable panels on the sock leg are juxtaposed with Stockinette on the remainder of the sock. The traditional slip-stitch heel and wide toe (grafted-- instructions included)make for a quick knit.

This pattern uses the wonderfully stretchy Estonian Cast-On for which a 2-page pictorial technique sheet is included. Larger needle listed is used for cast on and ribbing only.
