Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round, dpns, twisted sts

Pattern Description:

The lovely colors of the Wooly Wonka Fibers Superwash Bamboo Sock Yarn reminded me of sea grasses (unfortunately this yarn is no longer available). So I came up with a unique stitch pattern that conveyed that same feeling of sea grasses gently swaying in the ocean breeze.

"Vallisneria Socks" feature cable ribbing that flows gently into the twisted stitch pattern, which is carried down the leg onto the instep.

The cuff to toe pattern is suitable for the adventurous beginner through experienced knitter. The design is easily adapted for either the 2-circular needle or magic loop techniques.


32 sts and 40 rnds = 4 inches in the Twisted St pattern, slightly stretched.

  • Finished foot circumference: 8 inches
  • Finished foot length: 8 1/2 inches


  • Sock/fingering weight yarn ~ 378 yds/346 meters per skein ~ 1 skein
  • US 2 (2.75mm) set of 5 dpns

You Will Also Need:

  • cable needle
  • stitch markers
  • tapestry needle


Anything! Use a color that you like.
