GARDINER YARN WORKS
Named for the designer’s son, Owen, the Owenburger socks from Gardiner Yarn works keep it simple and somewhat boyish with easy cable columns interrupted by occasional rounds of garter stitch. A fold-over cuff is inspired by manly work socks and the pattern is sized to fit the whole family, It can be worked either top-down or toe-up for ultimate flexibility and the stitch pattern is both written and charted.
This pattern is excerpted from the book Indie Socks: Knitting Patterns and Dyer Profiles Featuring Hand-Dyed Yarns.
