The twisted stitches in this sock give the pattern its name, reflecting the intricacies of old-fashioned wrought iron. To counter-balance how the cabled stitches pull in the fabric slightly, the back of the sock is covered with a simple 4 stitch ribbed repeat. The ribbing is slightly cabled to complement the cabling on the front of the sock. The cables in this pattern are simple 1/1 cables. You may wish to cable without a cable needle for a faster knitting experience. A link to the technique of cabling without a cable needle is included in the pattern BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY work in the round some experience with cables GAUGE 32 sts = 4 inches in stocking stitch; blocked.

I prefer to design simple patterns that are (relatively) easy to knit. It might be redundant to say so, but I design socks that I’d want to knit. I want a pattern that looks fantastic, but isn’t ridiculously complicated. I want it to be easy, without being boring. I want to challenge myself a little, but not make things more difficult than they need to be. I love cables, twisted stitches, and lace. But not all at the same time! I try to design multiple sizes for each pattern since legs and feet come in all sizes. I also expect knitters to take liberties with the instructions and be able to substitute their favorite heel, toe or cuff if they so choose. I’m also pleased when a pattern can be converted into toe up without too much effort, although not all stitch patterns lend themselves to this. I do have every pattern test knitted to ensure accuracy and to get different perspectives on each pattern. However, I am human, so mistakes might happen. If they do, I’ll get them fixed right away.
