Tilt-A-Whirl Socks–Moving Along

I’m moving along on my version of Jennifer Leigh’s Tilt-A-Whirl socks from New Directions in Sock Knitting and have completed the leg. The diagonal “lace” stitch pattern in the leg is a simple 2-round repeat that’s easily memorized (as long as you remember which round you’re on…). I’m thinking this might make a nice pattern for a scarf or cowl!

The only trick is that the end of the round moves one stitch to the right (for the left sock; one stitch to the left for the right sock). For the mate, I think I’ll place a removable marker on the knitting at the end of the round to help me keep track of it.

I’ve just worked the set-up round of the gusset increases. Stitches will be added for the heel gusset between the two white markers. Easy!
