Pattern: £4.50 (+ VAT)
Why not take a walk on the wild side with these socks that feature both colourwork and cables? Actually, they’re not so hard as they look as the multi-coloured effect is achieved using slipped stitches so that only one colour is used at a time, even while working the cables.
Also, take advantage of a clever method that guarantees no jogs between colour changes – read more about it here – Jogless single row stripes.
Instructions for the pattern are both charted and fully written out so you can choose which you prefer.
