Have you ever fallen in love with a stitch pattern and felt the need to just put it on everything? I have, in a big way, with these crisp cables and stacks of knit and purl columns. They seem perfectly at place on so many different knits. They first made their appearance in my Brixter Hat pattern and here they are again, slightly modified in the Smokestack Socks. The all over ribbing makes these socks stretchy, pretty and extremely comfortable.
