Materials you need at home:

These socks feature a vine pattern that fully encircles. The vine starts at the top of the leg, where it grows out of the twisted stitch ribbing, then circles the leg ending up with a more subtle effect of sitting on a stocking stitch background. Left and right twisted stitches are used. No cabling is required. The two socks are mirror images of each other.
Twisted Jumbuck Designs
I am an Australian knitwear designer with a love of twisted stitches and innovative techniques. "Jumbuck" is an old Australian word for sheep, so I publish my patterns as Twisted Jumbuck Designs.
