CRAZY ZAUBERBALL/CABLE TWIST UPDATE

I’ve been wrestling with the abovementioned sock pattern for the past few days.  The pattern is cuff down, but I’ve converted cuff down patterns to my preferred toe up method several times by turning the pattern upside down with no problem. This time, though, it just didn’t work no matter how many times I tinked back or frogged to try something else.  No twisted rib showed up.  Finally, I decided to try the pattern right side up, but still keeping to the toe up technique.  It worked and the socks are back on track.  Can you see the difference made by starting on row 1 instead of row 8?  Apparently, not every pattern can be flipped.  Who knew??

 If you look closely, you can see the nearly invisible slipped stitches going to the right instead of the left.  Should have knitted a swatch first, I guess.
