From my fascination for graphic and texture I created this intriging stitch pattern. Eyelets are framed by smal cables and some twisted stitches that form winding lines. The pattern looks more complex than it really is and it adapts thoughtfully to the sock shape. It gives great knitting pleasure. The finished socks are small works of art and look especially beautiful and classy with solid or tonal dyed yarns.

The pattern is completely written out
and there are also charts.

Yarn consumption for shown socks:
Size US 8.5 (UK 6 / EU 39), foot length 23.5 cm
about 2.54 ounces (72 g) / 314 yards (288 m)

The socks are worked cuff down with heel flap and gusset.
To adjust the length of leg and/or foot knit more or fewer rounds/pattern repeats. To adjust the width knit with a tighter or looser gauge. The number of 64 stitches cannot be adjusted without changing the well planned pattern!

Many thanks to my great test knitters Maike mawie on ravelry and Kerstin youtube: Fililou strickt !
