I just finished my Rainy Day Socks (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?p=946897) and have some yarn (w balls of 50g each of Knitpicks Essential in Meteor Twist [navy & purple] color which I got in a trade) and am dying to try some cabled socks. Any pattern suggestions????????

Thanks. I recently saw a post where someone started regular plain sock then just made one large cable down the front. Very cool. Wish I could find it again.

I'm making these http://www.cidermoon.com/cm0127.html. I hoping to get them finished this week so I can post them on the August Challenge. Maybe you are remembering the post from redheadrachel - http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=63714.

lu- thanks for this post! i want to knit some red cabled socks... i wanted to do the tyrolean (sp?) stockings from IK, but my yarn is too small and i don't know how to adjust the pattern.
Knitknut- thanks, i am going to use thatpattern for my red socks :)

I started a cabled sock KA (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=64755) but no one seems to be interested.

I'm searching for one I saw a while back which was simple except for 2 small cables running down each side of the foot. I guess it's easy enough to figure without a pattern.

Cookie A (http://www.cookiea.com/). also has some neat cable patterns... twisted flower is on my to do list...

Drunken bees (http://www.domesticrafts.com/Clog/2007/07/30/GetYourDrunkenBeesHere.aspx)is also on my to do list....

Crooked Cable (http://files.blog-city.com/files/aa/3830/b/crookedcable.pdf)sock from sockbug...

There are a couple free cabled sock patterns at IK's website - they're under new patterns. I'm thinking about doing the Genome ones...

Dustinac, thanks so much for those! :woot:
I might try the one called "Monkey". BTW, that link to the last one, from her blog, (BTW, thanks for the link to her blog), won't open.

No worries! It's Interweave Knits, its a magazine but they have some free patterns on the website as well. I had read the magazine before I joined this forum, but I didn't know what IK stood for either until someone asked the same question ;)

Did you mean this one: Basic Cabled Sock (http://brainylady.blogspot.com/sockpattern.htm)

Cookie's BFF pattern looks like this: BFF. (http://flickr.com/photos/55055617@N00/853490870/in/set-72157601314741605/) Let me know if you want it - I have it saved on a CD somewhere.

Here are my Twisted Flower socks. They're tons of tiny little cables, but you have to be pretty comfortable with chart reading and cabling w/o a cable needle.
Twisted Flower 1 (http://flickr.com/photos/55055617@N00/1262942854/in/set-72157601314741605/)
Twisted Flower 2 (http://flickr.com/photos/55055617@N00/1262085909/in/set-72157601314741605/)
Twisted Flower 3 (http://flickr.com/photos/55055617@N00/1262086127/in/set-72157601314741605/)
More (http://flickr.com/photos/55055617@N00/853491028/in/set-72157601314741605/) and more (http://flickr.com/photos/55055617@N00/853491126/in/set-72157601314741605/) twisted

ETA: Here's (http://web.archive.org/web/20070306074339/http://www.knitanon.com/blog/bff.html) the archived permalink for the BFF socks - it takes a minute to load.

Yarndoc, the Twisted Flower is beautiful! I like something I DON'T have to pay so much attention to charts ;). I end up doing a long of frogging.

Thanks! Even though the 2nd one went a lot faster, I really didn't feel like finishing it! I was so tired of cables and twisted stitches by then!

What about this one (http://spacekitty.wordpress.com/2007/06/12/spring-cable-socks/)? I know she doesn't have a picture up, but you might want to email. Here's what someone else made with that pattern: http://www.flickr.com/photos/71285962@N00/1263587412

I just made 2 Irish Hiking Scarves and want to make Palindrome (Silver's reversible IHS), but I'm sort of feeling burned out on cables myself. LOL! But a sock shouldn't be too tiring cable-wise. :D
