'In Chains' is a unisex sock knitting pattern featuring a design that looks intricate, but is not difficult to work. Clever ways of slipping and twisting stitches, results in a pattern that looks like interlocking chains when worked in a single colour, or like small, open cables, when worked in stripes. The socks look great in a solid colour, for the more adventurous knitter, I have included a striped version also.
