Game of Spring socks are worked on two circular needles with a magic loop from the toe up.
The twisted stitch pattern with travelling cables runs vertically and gives a nice stretch.
The pattern is easier to knit than it appears, it uses a simple twisted-stitch technique. But it uses cable knit stitch with twisted stitches as well.

Why Game of spring?
These socks are designed in collaboration with Comeragh Yarns and Fibre Ireland. Her very special sock yarn used in this pattern is like spring in Sweden this year. It’s grey, it’s late, but it tries to break through the cold weather at the same time. It becomes a bit green, grey again, and a little bit green again.

This pattern provides 2 separately charted sizes for 56 or 64 stitches.
Use a solid or a semi-solid yarn to display the intricate twists and turns at its best.
