I'm still celebrating Socktober over here and thought I'd share a few cabled sock designs for today's Three on Thursday.
Lemino Socks. A free Ravelry pattern from Sarah Jordan. I like how in some of the examples shown on the pattern page show the cabling only going across the front of the leg. That would make these socks knit up much quicker. I'm all about quick socks at the moment.
Woodland Walk from This Handmade Life aren't exactly what I think of when I think cables but I like the design. Once again, I also like that the cabling is not all the way around the sock. And, I simply like their name. We've found some heavily wooded property that we are thinking about buying for our next house and I'm currently obsessed with the idea of living in a woodland cabin type home. These socks would be perfect for when I don't go for a walk because I'm afraid of the critters that might be lurking in the woods. 😏
Or what about Socks of Kindness from Chawne. I can't decide if it's the green color, the orange, or the design but for some reason, these look Halloweenish to me. I think it's the combination of the green and orange. I don't know. It doesn't even matter. I do love that shade of green though and while this cable pattern does go all the way around the sock, I see no reason why I couldn't just knit it on the fronts of the legs. Or perhaps all the way around, but knit the foot in plain stockinette to speed up the knitting process a little.
I hope you enjoy these patterns. They are all free on Ravelry.
