Tilt socks are toe-up style crochet socks with a simple slanted cable pattern that is reversed on the opposite foot. This results in a beautiful unisex sock that everyone will love. Gorgeous in solid and tonal yarns, this sock is also a charming pattern in variegated, handpainted or long striping yarns.
Written in 4-foot widths, the sock is easily customizable to foot length and leg height just by adding more or less of the 2 pattern row repeats once the slanting cables are established. Notes are included to help create a larger leg for those who may have thicker calves than others.
