Lerwick is a fully cabled sock that features a cable panel starting at the top of the leg and continuing down to the toe of the sock. The back of the leg features cabled ribbing. The heel is uniquely constructed; the heel flap and gussets are worked simultaneously which allows for the cable pattern to continue on the heel flap and the gussets. The sock finishes with a rounded toe that is grafted closed.
The many, many cables in this design result in a dense fabric that doesn’t have a lot of stretch. You may want to make a size larger than you normally would. The cables are also yarn-eaters! If you are knitting for large feet, you may want to have some extra yarn on hand, just in case!
Instructions are included for 4 circumferences and the foot length is customizable. The stitch patterns are both written and charted and the instructions are needle-neutral so you can use your preferred method of working small circumference in the round.
