This was released as a free warmup pattern for Sock Madness 14. It is now available to Sock Madness knitters and everyone else. This version has fixed a couple of errata that were in the version that was originally released.

Liesl is named for the oldest of the von Trapp singers from the Sound of Music, using Austrian twisted stitches. There is a sock for Friedrich and Louisa.

They are sized for a medium woman’s foot at any length, but can be sized up or down by changing the needle size and gauge.

Any fingering weight in a solid color will work, but light colors will show off the stitches best.
