Torquent: Latin: Twist.
Inspired by the twists life can take, the focus of these unisex socks are the left and right twists.
Knit in the round and cuff down, these socks feature twisted rib cuffs that 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.
The pattern is provided with both written instructions and charts.
