Cabled sock knitting pattern PDF - Braidalot
Braidalot is a unisex sock pattern featuring different types of braids. First off there are Latvian braids, secondly there is a piece of stranded colourwork depicting a braid, and finally there are different types of cables that were also inspired by their braided counterparts. These socks are knit cuff down with a variation of the Fleegle heel.
There are 3 sizes available: Small (64 stitches), Medium (72 stitches) and Large (80 stitches).
The pattern is worked at a gauge of 8 stitches and 11 rows = 2.5 cm in stockinette.
