A Feat of Twist Socks

A Feat of Twist Socks heel detail

Pattern Description:

The design of these lace and cable-icious sandal socks was inspired by a twist on the saying "A Twist of Fate". Twisted stitch lace columns alternate with lacy mesh enclosed in non-binding cable crossings. The result is lots of elasticity for a good fit across a range of sizes.

One sock has left-crossing cables with right-spiraling toe; the other sock has right-crossing cables with left-spiraling toe. Instructions are given for making the cables with or without a cable needle.

Includes charted and written stitch instructions.


8 stitches per inch over stockinette stitch
