I am usually ready for spring as soon as fall is ending, but unfortunately (for me), I have to get through winter first. Now winters are not really very bad here in Northern California, but we do get rain and with horses rain = mud, which is not fun. What better way to cheer up gloomy, rainy (or snowy depending on where you are!) days than with some bright and cheerful socks! These symmetrical, top-down socks are created using a combination of lace, slipped stitches and cables. The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for two sizes.
NOTE: Whenever you have a stitch patterns that include cables, the fabric will be a little on the tighter side. I found that Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock is a little thinner than a lot of sock yarns I use and so the combination of that with my typical US 1.5 needle size meant these were still pretty stretchy. If you are concerned about the socks being too tight, I recommend either knitting the larger size or, especially if you are using a heavier sock yarn, going up a half needle size.
