As a knitter, you’re able to make and enjoy beautiful things every day – right down to your socks. Hand-knitted socks are definitely the best: warmer than shop-bought ones, and so much more luxurious. Once you start wearing hand- knitted socks you’ll never go back to the bought ones!
This pair of textured, tweed socks were designed by Rachel Coopey and suit both men and women. “The textured pattern was inspired by a pattern on a tile I saw at the British Museum. I think the socks are great for men and women, and the ribbing along the sides on the socks ensures they will hug the foot and fit really well,” says Rachel.
These socks are designed for three sizes, Small (UK shoe size 3-4), Medium (UK shoe size 5-6) and Large (UK shoe size 7-8).
This pattern is featured in issue 96 of Simply Knitting.
