Free Sock Knitting Pattern: Cable Rib Socks

Terrible picture of cute socks!

Years ago, when I worked at Interweave, I designed the free sock knitting pattern, Cable Rib Socks. It appeared in a free eBook called Knitting Patterns for Knitting Accessories. A new version of this eBook is on the site now, and the sock pattern isn’t in it. Since people have asked me for the pattern, so I decided to put it on The Craftermath.

Sorry for the HORRIBLE PHOTOS. Funny story, I only knit one of these, and through the magic of Photoshop, two appeared in the eBook. Yeah, fake news. I’m going to knit these again so I can have a better photo, and a complete pair of socks.

The original pattern was knit from Zauberball Crazy, which I love, but I really think the stitch pattern would shine with a solid yarn. I’ll have to search my stash and see what I have. Probably nothing—yay, time to shop!

Cable Rib Socks from Ravelry user CazzaKnitter. Her yarn choice is perfect; it really shows off the stitch pattern.

I’m not the most prolific sock knitter, and truthfully, I don’t really enjoy knitting socks. I tend to have a death grip on those tiny needles, and my hands aren’t happy. Maybe I should try knitting on bamboo needles. Do any of you sock knitters have advice on this?

I’m heading to Phoenix in a couple of weeks, and this will be my travel project. Here’s hoping I can finish them up!

Cheers,

P.S. Let me know if you have any sock-knitting advice for me. I could use it!
