Relax and unwind with the deceptively simple No Room for Ravers – though it features cables and beads, the seemingly complex patterning is achieved with a mere 8-row pattern repeat. Knit from the cuff down, with a gusset and heel flap, these socks will soon be off your needles and warming your toes. For a luxurious feel, I chose to make these in Hayton 4ply, which includes cosy cashmere in the blend.
This cuff-down sock pattern, with a gusset, heel flap and grafted toe, contains step-by-step instructions for the easy crochet hook method of beading (which avoids the need to pre-thread all the beads at once), and a useful tutorial. Beading is optional of course! And if you intend wearing your lovely socks with closed shoes, I suggest omitting the beads on the foot section.
Treat yourself and your feet to a pair of indulgent beaded socks, because you’re worth it!
