Triple Braids

When I first read about the Socks Revive contest, I was motivated to work on another sock design (although I have just completed the Autumn socks for Knitting Inspirations). For this design, I wanted cables but not a complicated stitch pattern so that it can be easily memorised. After swatching many cable stitches, I came up with a simplified triple cables stitch which looks like braids.

“Three columns of triple cables running up the feet and you can choose to mirror the cables on the other sock ….. an easy pattern to remember and a pleasure to knit.”

I am quite happy with the results & really enjoyed knitting the socks. I also chose to use one of my favorite yarn, Handmaiden Casbah in Rose. It's really the perfect match.

I have just submitted my entry & the pattern is now available in ravelry for free until the end of the month.

Happy knitting !
