From Pattern Introduction: Traveling twisted stitches have been used to decorate stockings from Bavaria, Tyrol, Alsace, and Norway. Traveling stitch clocks can be found on Danish and Estonian stockings. The pattern here takes elements from a number of stockings with traveling stitches, yet has a Bavarian flavor. The traveling stitches begin several rounds below the end of the ribbing or welt and there is a decorated seam running down the back of the leg.…This pair of socks is sized for a lady. For man’s socks, go up a needle size and work more Stockinette stitch rounds in the foot to add length before the toe shaping begins.
