A fabric with a cabled look, but no cables and a little openwork but no lace, makes this top-down sock in five sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL) universally appealing. Featuring an easy to memorize pattern with lots of textural interest, this project travels well and knits up quickly into a sleek, lightweight sock suitable for casual or dress wear.
Substituting needles and/or yarn may result in an overall variation in size.
