this sock has a secret—what looks like a humble 2-by-2 rib opens up to a mesmerizing texture of cocoon shapes that provide cozy warmth. the twist-stitch pattern adds a sturdy hand to the fabric and a snug fit around the foot to help it stay put.
many thanks to tina, who sent the amazing yarn used in the sample—i’m always happy to work with her fine fibers.
anne marie (sadly blogless) was the inspiration for getting this pattern to the finishing line—she urged me to design a sock, then offered to test knit it, and then, she knit two pair.
thank you as well to rachel who suffered through a few re-dos of the pattern before we had it where we wanted it. thanks!
