Being immersed in a sci-fi culture, the name Time Warp came to mind immediately when I saw the stitch pattern these socks are based on. Knitted from the top down, an uneven rib flows into the lace and cable pattern that twists and turns from cuff to toe. Time Warp is a stretchy sock for a comfortable fit with a slip-stitch heel flap.
The sock pattern includes both charts and written instructions for the Time Warp Lace. Instructions for the uneven rib and slip stitch heel are written. Pattern layout options are included for both A4 and letter size papers. The pattern is downloadable in pdf format and can be viewed using Adobe pdf reader. A copy of this software is available at http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/. Images have been provided by Karen Butler Designs.
