Using US2 (2.75mm) for cuff with a German twisted cast-on. Switched to US1 (2.25mm) for leg/lace pattern.

Two repeats of the instep pattern. I carried the twisted rib through the toe. Grafted with 13 st left on each of the two needles.

Lovely pattern in a beautiful yarn. The German twisted cast-on will be my new go-to cast on for top-down socks. Nice and stretchy. Maybe too stretchy on this sock, so I might not need to go up a needle size like I usually do for sock cuffs.
