Socks that are just right for a walk in the woods.
Inspiration for these socks came while walking the South West Coast path. At Helston there is an option to wade through the river at low tide, if you are careful to avoid the creature that swims in these waters. It goes by the name of "Morgawr". The lace panel down the centre front of the sock is the ripple you see on the water as you walk out of the woods at a the water's edge.
Construction is top down in the round on DPNs starting with a short section of 1x1 rib. The lace detail has garter rib on either side and is identical on the front and back of the leg. The heel features a slip stitch heel flap, short row heel turn and gusset. The pattern continues down the top of the foot. The toe features a wedge construction. The last 12 stitches are joined with Kitchener stitch.
