These socks are for anyone who - like me - struggles narrowing down their colour choices. Three 50g skeins of sock yarn is enough to make two pairs of socks, by swapping the shades around. Playful stripes and simple stocking stitch make these a wonderfully addictive knit. 

If you fancy a different colour combination of Exmoor Sock yarn please add to the special instructions box at checkout.

This kit includes 3 skeins of Exmoor Sock yarn, pdf pattern which will be emailed and a sachet of Eucalan wool wash to block your beautiful socks.

Sock foot circumference: 15 (18, 20.5, 23) cm / 6 (7, 8, 9) inches
Leg Length: 18 (20.5, 21.5, 25) cm / 7 (8, 8.5, 9.75) inches (adjustable) 
Foot length: 16.5 (20.5, 23, 26) cm / 6.5 (8, 9, 10.25) inches (adjustable) 

Designed to be worn with 2.5 cm / 1 inch negative ease on both foot circumference and length, to ensure a good fit.

Working heel turn, picking up stitches, decreasing, Kitchener grafting, simple stripes.

This sock is knitted top down, with a textured slip-stitch heel flap for extra comfort. Stripes add a dash of interest when knitting the foot. Both the leg and foot lengths are adjustable, so I recommend periodically trying on these socks as you go, to ensure the best fit.
