Contorta Socks

Irish Girlie Knits

Twisty trees. Gnarled branches. The stitch pattern that travels down the centre panel of these socks reminded me of just that. When you search "twisty trees" on the internet, you'll find pictures of Corylus avellana 'Contorta'. But don't let the twists fool you, this is a deceptively easy pair of socks to knit!
