    • Illustrated knitting pattern
    • US Imperial and Metric measurements given
    • Charted pattern


    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.
