Sivia Harding shares her design process for her cuff down Buried Treasure Socks..."I have wanted for a long time to make intensely cabled socks, and here they are... elegant socks with cables galore, plus a “buried treasure” of glittering beads. The cables cause the leg to draw in more than usual, so the number of leg stitches has been increased to compensate. These extra stitches are then decreased in the gusset with a special technique. These socks were first published in Yarn Magazine Issue 8, November 2007.
