Cinder Twist Socks
This cable pattern has been rolling around in my head for quite awhile. I thought it would be perfect as a mirrored pair so socks were the obvious choice. The cable panel made me think of smoke spiraling away from a fire and the small flecks of gray in the yarn made me think of ashes hence the name: Cinder Twist.
These socks are knit from the toe up and use an afterthought heel. To keep them comfy and easy to wear the foot has a ‘princess sole’ and the back of the leg is simple, squishy ribbing. The cable panel snakes it’s way from the toe to the cuff.
Sizes: Womens, (Mens/Womens Wide, Mens Wide)
Flat measurements: 3.5 (3.75, 4) inches
As these socks are knit from the toe up it is very easy to adjust width and length.
Needle: size 5/3.75mm DPNs or 1 long circular in each size. The gauge looks a little weird because it is measured with a non-standard gauge pattern. I knit 11 sts of 1x1 ribbing and 14 sts of the cable pattern for 25 sts total. This gave me 3 inches unstretched.
