Knit in the round, knit through the back loop, basic decreases, wrap and turn garter short rows
The Mockingbird Lane Socks pattern uses ONLY knits and purls to create lanes of mock cables — with NO cabling required! The socks will make you look like a pro knitter, but you will know how simple and easy they were to make. Written for three sizes, you can knit up socks for both men and women. The socks are designed to flow from a rib cuff to the mock cable pattern that ends with the center cable flowing through to the end of the toe. The garter-stitch heel knits up in a flash and requires no picking up of wraps. Grab your favorite pair of sock needles and a fun skein of yarn and get started on some Mockingbird Lane Socks!
