There is a video of the right-twist stitch used in the pattern. You can view the video at this post from All Buttoned Up.
For a video about doing the special twist stitch, see this post on my blog.
These socks remind me of how I feel after working from nine in the morning until five at night, sometimes more than just five days a week. I get all wound up! The sock also has a dressier quality to it, so it can be a work sock too.
These socks feature a deceptively simple stitch pattern that looks like it would require a cable needle; but it doesn’t! The heel uses a half-linen stitch that creates a woven look that perfectly compliments the two spirals that continue down each side of the heel flap. This sock also features a special method of picking up the heel stitches in a way which places the column of selvedge stitches on the outside of the sock, creating a decorative braid that further sets off the heel. This sock is very stretchy because of the ribbed nature of the stitch pattern.
