Whit's Knits: Little Cable Knee Highs

These Little Cable Knee Highs are designed to look like they could as easily have been plucked from a case at the Victoria and Albert Museum as from a shelf at Barney's. They're simple and practical, but with an attention to detail that's both timeless and beautiful. Serious sock knitters are also seriously particular about their sock yarn. That's why I used Anzula's Squishy, one of our favorites for everything from socks to baby blankets.

Squishy is the perfect blend of fibers for knitting up a superior pair of socks: merino for warmth and ruggedness, nylon for durability and cashmere for totally happy feet. These Little Cable Knee Highs are just in time for holiday giving. The Materials The Pattern Gauge 8 1/4 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette stitch Finished Sizes The Toe The Foot.

Guess what? I'm compiling an index of calculators here. This page will calculate the ideal decrease rate to shape the crown of a hat using paired decreases; the ideal rate results in a fairly flat crown. The "theory" may, eventually, be discussed at my blog. Seasoned hat knitter will notice that if you enter a typical gauge for a hat with 6 or 8 wedges, the calculator reproduces the "rule of thumb" shaping for a hat.
