Designing always brings its lot of unexpected. This sock pattern is really not what it was supposed to be! I had in mind a different cuff, a slightly different heel and the little “trident” detail was a on-the-spot decision. Obviously, they had a totally different name also!
The Atlantis Twins is a cuff-down sock pattern with a slipped-stitch detail over a reverse stockinette fabric. But don’t worry! They are knit inside out, so there is only minimal purling involved. The heel flap features a mosaic colourwork pattern. They are easy and addictive to knit.
