A Feat of Twist Socks
HeartStrings knitting pattern #S27
The design of these lace and cable-icious sandal socks was inspired by a twist on the saying "A Twist of Fate". Twisted stitch lace columns alternate with lacy mesh enclosed in non-binding cable crossings. The result is lots of elasticity for a good fit across a range of sizes.
One sock has left-crossing cables with right-spiraling toe; the other sock has right-crossing cables with left-spiraling toe. Instructions are given for making the cables with or without a cable needle.

Sized for adult small (medium, large). 265 (340, 425) yards fingering weight yarn and knitting needles size US 1 / 2.25 mm or size to give gauge of 8 stitches per inch over stockinette stitch. Planned finished measurements are
- sock foot circumference: 7½ (8¾, 10)"; choose the size that gives you a moderately snug fit to best show off the lace

- sock foot length: 9 (10, 11)"
Leg, heel flap depth and foot of sock can be knitted to length desired. If making adjustments for longer leg or foot lengths, please allow extra yarn than specified above. Includes charted and written stitch instructions.
