♫ The Music ♫The Cottage in Kilraine is a traditional ballad that relates a story of happenstance and love.*“…The mother she shook hands with me saying I hope you’ll call again; For you know you’re always welcome in a cottage in Kilraine…”. *And so, welcome to socks that abound in Celtic cables with love woven in.
The instep, gusset and leg stitch patterns are charted only.
Celtic cable toe-up socks that feature two distinct yet harmonized Celtic cables. After the wide-toe shaping, the first Celtic cable is worked on the instep; it splits at the gusset and ends as it is worked into the heel flap.
The leg’s Celtic closed-ring cable grows from the gusset shaping and is flanked by tiny rope cables which meet at the side of the sock. The heel is turned using short rows so no picking up stitches! Notes are provided on adjusting foot length.
Both metric and Imperial measurements included.
