Normally, my patterns have great nature inspired background story from the Grand Tetons. This pair of socks has no such story.
I started out with one idea and this pair of socks were not cooperating. I went back to the drawing board again and again until I gave into what they wanted to be. Hence, their name, Twist of Fate.
The twisted rib cuff effortlessly blends into the twisted rib pattern of decreases and increases to create the curving pattern.
There are 3 different versions of charts for the leg and foot, one for
each size: Size Small, Size Medium, and Size Large. Use the appropriate chart for the size being worked.
Teton Yarn Company Hand Dyed Mountain Sock Yarn, a durable but soft, 4 ply Superwash Merino Sock Yarn with generous yardage with the right amount of twist to hold up to socks but soft enough to wear next to the skin for a variety of projects such as shawls, shawlettes, baby blankets, wraps, gloves and hats.

Dyeing: Teton Yarn Company uses color fast acid dyes on all our yarns. My yarns are all hand dyed by me in my yarn studio in Teton Valley, Idaho. Yarns are dyed in groups of 2-3 in most cases and I do my best to ensure consistency in each batch, however, there will be some variation even within a dye lot. Different dye lots will be siblings, rather than twins, so it is recommended you order enough for a project in one order for best results.
