NOT TOO WARM ARAN-CABLED WINTER LONG SOCKS

Fortunately I don't need these sock for some time!
It's still full summer here in Italy!
I made them now, as i'll need long-socks for my 
upcoming winter slipper- and boot-patterns.
I wanted a classic look for these socks, so I ended up with
a simple R/L-post dropped st on 5 dcs.
Look like Aran cables, or braids.
Pattern HERE

The feet are made in the most simple manner; dcs only!
To call it socks, you need feet, even as the leg-part
is the the fun of working socks!

Increasing for calf-width, the pattern develops in a pretty manner!

These pics was taken in middle of August in + 35 C, so I had big
trouble taking the socks off after the photo-session!
My legs were all soaked wet!
