Now there's a fingering weight verson too! Misfit Lite

The socks are first knit horizontally around the cuff then stitches are picked up for the leg and foot. I used my favorite short row heel, but it’s easy to substitute any heel and toe you like as well as adjusting the stitch count of the leg to fit any foot. I made them short so that the cable rests at the narrowest point of the ankle, but they would look great with the cuff peeking out of the top of boots. Please adjust them however you need to make them perfect for you.

They are named Misfit for two reasons. First they are not quite toe up or cuff down, and second I was inspired to do a cabled sock as I was knitting the popular Rogue Hoodie pattern.

Though the pattern calls for a cable needle I suggest trying out some of the techniques for Cabling without a Needle.


When picking up the stitches from the cuff you will get a much cleaner join if you pick up both legs of the slipped stitches.
