Helix Wiggles Socks
These slip-stitch cables worked over spiraling stripes are an amazing way to show off beautiful hand-painted yarns, with waves of both colors swirling down the front of the leg. After starting each color on half the ribbing stitches, the stripes twirl down the leg from the cuff.
The Helix Wiggles socks are knit top-down in the round, with helical stripes in two colors on the leg and foot, and a solid-color short row heel and standard toe. The cables on the front of the socks are worked with slipped stitches, so you’re only handling one color at a time, and there are no jogs at the end of stripes. The cable pattern is both fully written out and fully charted.
