I like my coffee blonde and sweet with extra whipped topping. The gentle cables of these socks are spaced generously, to allow for some down time to chat while knitting, but still evoke the twisty whipped-cream topping of your favorite espresso drink. These socks are the perfect fall and winter accessory, giving a playful feel to cold-weather dressing.

-On the toe, knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts to maintain the Rib Pattern between the first and last two stitches on the top of the sock.
