Torquent: Latin: Twist.
Inspired by the twists life can take, the focus of these unisex socks are the left and right twists.
Twisted rib cuffs transition into modest accents flowing down the leg before intensifying on the heel again. Designed to be mirror images of each other, they can be worn with the twists facing in or out.
Torquent Socks are worked from the cuff down, in the round. The pattern is provided with written instructions and charts. The design is suitable for solid and semi-solid colour-ways.
