Reynolds Cantata Cotton Socks with Mock Cable Right Twist Pattern

Reynolds Cantata cotton hand knit socks with mock cable right twist pattern

The cotton socks I started last May are finally done. I had to do a bit of surgery to remove the old checkerboard top. I underestimated how much yardage I had and came up short on the second sock.

The yarn is Reynolds Cantata, a cotton/nylon blend that had lived in my stash for too long. It was very elastic in the ball. Not so much on the foot. Even with the rib-like pattern, I wouldn’t recommend this yarn for socks – too thick for summer wear and very little memory.
