Heritage Silk Cabled Top
Heritage Silk yarn from Cascade feels great on your needles. It’s superwash Merino and Mulberry Silk. This pattern uses a double strand so it turns out thicker – 5 stitches per inch. The double cable runs down the front and the back.
The pattern was designed by Marilyn Peters and is on Cascade Yarns website. But after finding a few omissions, I rewrote it. I only have it in a medium size but if you’re able to adjust the pattern you could change for other sizes.
Enoy the yarn. It’s fabulous – I have a rich purple and fushia in stock.

I had trouble with the kitchener stitch to close up the toe.
next time I’ll follow the instructions from this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkW3kP7RZdk
I still prefer the toe up method for socks because when you are finished both socks are finished and they are the same. I find there is far less counting!
