This type of traveling twisted stitch pattern is said to have originated in Austria, and is often attributed to the state of Tyrol in the Alps. While designing these socks I though how wonderful it would be to go skiing in that part of the world. A friend shared an ad from a cross-country ski magazine with me. They advertised a trip to this area, specifically to the Gschnitztal Valley.

Construction: Socks are knit top down. Pattern written so that either DPNs or circular needles can be used.

Size: Women’s medium. Pattern written for 1 size.

Stitch instructions: charted only.
