Pattern: Wanderoo Socks

This sibling sock to Wanderly follows a similar route but sometimes breaks its own trail, with a new cable
pattern, differing heel construction, and a longer color block on the cuff. Like its sibling, Wanderoo takes us on a little adventure. This time our cables meander back and forth as though they can’t quite make up their mind where they want to be: a little to the left, back to the right, sometimes a little longer, sometimes a little less. And I think that’s just fine. Sometimes I don’t really know where I want to go either, and I reserve the right to change my mind along the way.
 
Wanderoo is worked toe-up, with contrast color toes, heels, and cuff. The heel construction uses short rows this time, because we can all use a little variety, even when we’re walking a familiar path. I’ve also included instructions for a clever little mini gusset that delivers the perfect amount of extra room across the ankle for those who need it. The socks are worked in the same yarn and gauge as Wanderly – Morehouse Farm’s 100% merino Gator yarn ­– which means that more experienced sock knitters will see that the design and construction elements of each of these two patterns can be swapped out, to customize something that really moves you.
