Sometimes you have a great idea for a design, but something is missing – that little je ne sais quoi. That’s how I felt about my Oh La La Socks for a long time. I had the stranded chart all ready to go, but I felt that there needed to be something more. I had tried a patterned heel flap, but that wasn’t what I was looking for.
The answer came to me when I wanted to use a Latvian Twist for a different design. It didn’t work out for that one, but I decided to give it a try for the socks that were in time-out waiting for me to come back to them. And voilà – the Oh La La Socks were finally born!
A stunning stranded pattern and a contrasting color for ribbing, heel and toes are tied together by an impressive, yet easy to work Latvian twist using all three colors. Your feet deserve no less!
A photo tutorial for the Latvian Twist is included in the pattern!
Check out the pattern and let me know in the comments what you think, I’d love to hear from you!
