Make your own sock pattern?
Hey everyone! I have a question about making your own sock pattern, and it may be an obvious yes or no to you more experienced knitters, but I just don't know.

I have a very basic sock pattern that I love to use. I want to make some Aran braid or other cable socks, but I can't find the pattern I want. Is it possible to just make my basic sock the way I normally would, but just add the cables? I know that it might be a little more snug with the cable on it, but I'd actually like that.

So would it work to just add a cable onto your basic sock pattern?

Yep!

A simple basic sock pattern is the basis for ANY sock you wanna make. Add cables, lace, intarsia, stranded colorwork, whatever you want to make them your own.

Sure, just center them over the leg and instep, but here are Eunny Jang's Bayerische socks that have intricate (but fairly simple) cables over them.

Here they are - http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/09/bayerische.html
