Daylight and Shadows Beaded Cable Socks

HeartStrings knitting pattern #S28

Beads in a lighter color (daylight) and darker color (shadows) embellish the twining columns of stitches on these charming cabled socks. This pattern includes instructions for two styles — one with a playful beaded fringe cuff; the other with the more refined look of a plain cuff.

Have fun choosing beads to coordinate with your yarn.

The detail photo to right shows a tone-on-tone example of beads chosen just a shade lighter and darker compared to the yarn's value.

The gray sock in the photo above shows an example of beads chosen for more contrast.
