Whitecap is a basic sock pattern with a few figurative and literal twists. The twisted stitches, which resemble whitecaps on the water, slant in opposite directions. The left sock is worked solely with left twists, and the right sock is worked solely with right twists, creating a mirrored effect. The pattern is both engaging and easily memorized, with four knit “rest” rounds between twists, and works well with solid, semi-solid, tonal, and variegated sock yarns.

These socks are worked from the cuff down in the round with a Modified Eye of Partridge heel flap and gusset.
