There is a mistake in YF where it says that W&T stands for Wrap and Twist. The W&T in this pattern is for Wrap and TURN
Check this group post for more info.

The name of these socks comes from the Blois Castle (in the Loire Valley, in France). One of its most famous pieces of architecture is a magnificent spiral staircase. The side twist in this pattern reminded me of this spiral staircase. It is also the region of origin from my mum’s family and I have fond memories of visiting my Great-Aunt there as a child.

These socks with gusset and heel flap are knit toe-up.
