My first ever cable socks were knitted back in 2017. They were knitted out of my Granny Kit cotton in colour Alice, to be my bedtime socks.It was only shortly after when my local students asked if I could teach them how to knit socks. I was laughing so loud and said, no way. How could I teach something I had just learned how to do? Their answer was pretty much this: It’s fresh in your head, you are totally obsessed, we have been learning with you for years so please teach us what you know.
I wanted a pair of cosy cable socks, perfect for a slow weekend but also perfect to wear with my loved Birkenstocks. Knitted with a bit of positive ease for some extra comfort. The Cosy Weekend sock is a cuff down pattern that you can knit using any method of your preference. With a 3×1 wide rib and a pair of chunky cables run along the front of the sock. Knitted up in a DK merino Yak blend makes it cosy and so soft against the skin.
This is THE most simple cable pattern you’ll ever knit. If you know how to Knit a pair of cuff down sock, you will be able to knit a pair of Cosy Weekend Socks.

What originally led me to learn to knit socks was the desire to know how to knit cable socks. I was absolutely sure that knitting cables was one of the most complicated things. And I was 100% sure it would take years till I will become a sock knitter. It was a complete shock to me, when I knitted my first cable sock, that it’s not that complicated AT ALL. Actually it’s quite simple snd easy, once you get the idea of moving stitches onto a cable needle and knitting them as instructed in the pattern.
