Hand Knit socks with feather and fan lace pattern

I need some help deciding which one is better. . . or shall I keep them both?

I knit these socks using the feather and fan pattern with a 4 stitch cable in between. The fun part is that I moved the pattern around.

I was thinking of writing up a pattern for this and couldn’t decide how to place the patterns. . . so I made two socks slightly different.

Each sock has 3 feather lace patterns and 3 4-st cable patterns.

One sock has the feather lace going down the center of the front with cables at the sides. This puts two feather patterns in the back with the cable in the center of the back. On this sock I ran this center cable down the entire heel.

The other sock has the cable running down the center of the front with two feather patterns down the side. This puts two cable patterns on each side of a centered feather lace down the back of the sock. I ran these cables along the side down into the heel too.

The placement of the designs also gave the top of each sock a different scallop. . . I still can’t decide which I like better. I think I like the one with the feather lace down the center front and the cable running down the center back and down into the heel.

Let me know which one you like better!

Happy knitting,
Shawn
