Combine colour and cables for this divine pair of toe-up socks designed to make you dance - created with no cable needle they're quick knit too!
These socks are knit from the toe up.
While the main pattern resembles cabling, no cable needle is used.
This pattern was written for the Magic Loop style of knitting. If you prefer to use DPNs or two circular needles, rearrange the number of stitches accordingly across your needles to construct the heel and toe.
