In 6 months, I will be selling the pattern myself and it will then be available on my Designer’s Page on Ravelry.
About the pattern:
The name of these socks comes from the Blois Castle (in the Loire Valley, in France). One of its most famous pieces of architecture is a magnificent spiral staircase. The side twist in this pattern reminded me of this spiral staircase. It is also the region of origin from my mum’s family and I have fond memories of visiting my Great-Aunt there as a child.
These socks with gusset and heel flap are knit toe-up.
