Dear Sockapalooza Sock Pal,
Let's play dress up! Check out this new outfit for your footsies:
Needles: US 0 dpns, set of 5 (these ones).
I tweaked the pattern a little to make sure the cuff wasn't too tight, and that there was plenty of room for my pal's ankles.
To make the two socks mirror images of each other, I reversed the direction of the decorative edging as well as the path of the cables. I also decided to continue the cable pattern on the instep, instead of knitting it plain.
Speaking of cables, there are a good number of them in this pattern. Do you know how to cable without a cable needle? It's a wonderful timesaver, I highly recommend it! This is how I do it, and there are a ton of other tutorials, too!
