All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmermann , “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

Check out my group, Minnesota Nice Knits and Facebook Page, Minnesota Nice Knits for testing calls and special offers!

The Broken Twist Socks feature a cable rib pattern that is way easier to knit than it looks, with cabling only taking place every 8th round. The sock uses the Strong Heel, which results in an extra comfortable heel that hugs the foot quite nicely.

Pattern has been thouroughly tested and I offer full pattern support via Ravelry message.
