To design a simple yet stylish sock for men, using twisted stitches, was one of my intentions for 2009.

Subtle curved lines and variations on basis ribbing should make knitting the socks interesting, even for the larger sized feet. The sock is mirrored on the left and right foot. The waved lines are placed on the outside of the ankle and foot, a ribbed gusset is placed on the inside of the foot. The ribbing give the socks a snug fit.

The pattern includes several charts, yet the pattern is easy to memorize.

S: 60 st., shoesize EU 38/39 or foot length 25 cm
M: 64 st., shoesize EU 42/43 or foot length 27.5 cm
L: 68 st., shoesize EU 44/45 or foot length 28,5 cm

The pattern is available in English and Dutch.

The description of the foot had a typo
