Today I finished my Eyelet-Cable Socks. It is a simply sock with an off-center cable at the side of the sock. It is hard to see in the pics, but there are eyelets in the cable itself. For the socks I used size 2,5 needles (US size 1 I think) and a very stretchy sock yarn called Lana Grossa Meilenweit Point Stretch.

Cast on 60 stitches and work about 10 rounds of k2, p1 for the ribbing.

1.-6. round: k3, p3, k6, p3, k to end of round

7. round (cable round): k3, p3, slip 3 stitches onto cable needle, hold cable needle at the back of work, knit 3 stitches from the left needle, now knit 3 stitches off the cable needle, p3 and k to end of round
