Inspired by the mistletoe’s twigs and branches, these socks feature a twist stitch pattern that slowly grows with every repeat. Grab a favourite skein from your stash or treat yourself to something special and cast on!
The socks are knit toe-up on circular needles using the magic loop method. This pattern includes instructions for both a gusset & heel flap heel and a German short-row heel. You can of course substitute your preferred heel method.
This pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited.
