Avalon is a legendary island featured in the Arthurian legend. Avalon was associated from an early date with healing and mystical practices. According to the legend, the island is hidden by heavy mists which can only be parted by true believers. Secret gates to other worlds, where fairies and other magical folk live, are also rumored to be hidden in the mist.

This top down sock pattern uses Bavarian twisted stitches and beads to depict what those gates might look like if one could only see them. For this pattern, I recommend using solid or low contrast yarn to showcase the intricate stitch work, but any color way of your choice will work. Twisted stitch work can also limit the stretchiness of the finished sock, so either use a yarn that is springy with good crimp, use larger needles, or size up. Directions are provided for 4 adult women's sock sizes, extra small, small, medium, and large, equivalent to women's shoe sizes US 6-6.5 (EU 36-37), US 7-7.5 (EU 37.5-38), US 8-8.5 (EU 38.5-39), and US 9-9.5 (EU 40-41). Directions include a fitted heel and simple arch shaping. Stitch pattern included only as chart.
