Around the World Socks

Around the World Socks Stitch Detail
Around the World Socks
by Jodie Danenberg
Difficulty Intermediate

I learned how to the mock cable twist at my local Stitch n’ Bitch and couldn’t wait to try
it out on a pair of socks. I added an extra twist to the pattern by moving the location of
the twist every time. Between the colors and the constant motion of the twist I called
these socks Around the World. Thiese will look great with all sorts of varigated and striping sock yarn. Enjoy!
