  1. The pattern is written using magic loop method; hence, the basic understanding of the magic loop method is required to understand the pattern. Victoria Socks can also be adopted to use dpn. However, I would highly recommend using magic loop method because the nature of the motif.
  2. Everyone’s foot length is unique; hence, measure your foot length before working on the socks.
  3. Victoria Socks is worked from toe-up; the cast on method that I used is the magic cast-on method by Judy Becker. I have included the cast on instruction below.
  4. The heel of the sock is work using short row.

The pattern includes basic instruction on Magic Loop method, graphic instruction of magic cast on by Judy Becker, short-row heel and detail chart for the Twist and Lace Stitch.

As always if there is any question of the pattern, Please feel free to contact me.
