Why not take a walk on the wild side with these toe-up socks that feature both colourwork and cables? Actually, they’re not so hard as they look as the multi-coloured effect is achieved using slipped stitches so that only one colour is used at a time, even while working the cables.
Also, take advantage of a clever method that guarantees no jogs between colour changes - read more about it at https://www.jotorr.co.uk/jogless-single-row-stripes/
