Licorice Twist Toe Up Socks Knitting Pattern
The Licorice Twist socks are worked from the toe up and use short rows to shape the heel turn. The sock features a simple twisted stitch pattern that can be worked with or without a cable needle, and includes instructions for a regular or reinforced toe, and a reinforced heel turn.
While this pattern is written for double point needles, it can easily be converted to whatever needles you like to use for your socks - small circumference circulars, magic Loop, or two circular needles.
The sample socks are a size M2 and were worked with Small Bird Yarn’s 2 ply Organic Fingering in the Black Cherry colourway.
