Kontio socks continue the series of unisex sock patterns designed for worsted weight yarns. The socks are worked cuff down, French heel is reinforced and the left and right foot socks are worked as mirror images of each other.
A cuff-down cabled sock designed originally to fit into the Cables category for Sock Knitters Anonymous September 2014 Challenge. Uses a 74 stitch leg and 64 stitch foot. Sizing can be adjusted by using heavier weight yarn and larger diameter needles.
I wanted to use sport weight yarn to produce an elegant pair of socks and decided to go for the Austrian cables. I found the cable patterns in Maria Erlbacher’s book Überlieferte Strickmuster aus dem Steirischen Ennstal.
