Slackcountry Socks PDF
Slackcountry Socks from SweetGeorgia are knit from the top down with twisted stitches in an elegant rib and cable pattern. The twisted stitches make for crisp and defined columns in this design. The twisting and turning lines in these socks look like fresh ski tracks within straight boundary lines. The columnar pattern itself is like a ribbing, so you cast on and dive right into the pattern stitches. No separate ribbed cuff is needed. These socks feature a reinforced Dutch heel for strength and durability. Sole of the foot is knit in stockinette for comfort. Please note that for the majority of this pattern instructions are both written and charted except for the stitch pattern instructions for the toe, which is only charted.
