Goanna Skin socks

These socks use travelling/twisted stitches and columns of twisted ribbing that feed continuously into the band ribbing, the heel slip stitch pattern and around the sides of the toes. The pattern reminds me of the scales on a lizard, so I have named them after the Australian lizard family, the Goanna. The socks are knitted in the round from the top down.

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.
