More Fun Than Cables Sock Pattern

More Fun Than Cables socks in Opal UNI-Solid 29Size: Women’s medium
Yarn: 100g sock/fingering weight.
Needles: 2-24” circulars US 1, 2.5mm. You can easily switch to double points or Magic Loop if desired.
Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette stitch

The socks in the picture are knit with Opal UNI-Solid #29.

This pattern shows best with a solid or almost solid yarn or a variagated yarn with very short color repeats.

The stitch pattern does NOT pull in like real cables. If known, use the same number of stitches and the same size needle as you would for a stockinette stitch sock.

k = knit
k2tog = knit two stitches together
p = purl
p2tog = purl two stitches together
slip = slip purlwise unless pattern specifies knitwise
ssk = slip knitwise, slip knitwise, knit two slipped stitches together
yo = yarn over

Special instructions for cross 4:
  • Slip 4 knit stitches as if to purl, popping corresponding yarn overs off the needle and letting them drop. The result is 4 elongated stitches on the right hand needle.
  • Grab the rightmost 2 elongated stitches with the point of the left needle and lift them over the two leftmost elongated stitches and onto the left needle.
  • Slide the remaining two elongated stitches onto the left needle.
  • Knit the crossed elongated stitches onto the right hand needle, being careful to keep them in order.

I've just knit these socks, and I'm delighted with the result. Your instructions are precise and complete.

I'm a passionate sock knitter, having knit my first pair only three years ago. This is easily the best pattern I've found so far. I'll be knitting more of these, I'm sure.

Thank you!
