Description

In Greek mythology, Demeter the goddess of the harvest presided over grains and the fertility of the earth. She was also known as Sito "she of the Grain" and as Thesmophoros or "Law-Bringer" due to her influence on the existence of civilized agricultural society. Known as the most generous of the great Olympian goddesses she presided over the cycle of life and death and was beloved for her service to mankind.
This top down sock pattern uses Bavarian twisted stitches, simple cables, and lace to portray Demeter’s gift to mankind. For this pattern, I recommend using solid or low contrast yarn to showcase the intricate stitch work, but any color way of your choice will work. Twisted stitch work can also limit the stretchiness of the finished sock, so either use a yarn that is springy, use larger needles, or size up. Directions are provided for 4 adult women’s sock sizes, extra small, small, medium, and large, equivalent to women’s shoe sizes US 6-6.5 (EU 36-37), US 7-7.5 (EU 37.5-38), US
