I haven't yet knitted this pattern but having made every other pattern Winwick Mum has designed and written I am looking forward to it - so lovely to discover a new pattern of hers! Looks brilliant and will show off all sorts of lovely wool.
We are excited to have this exclusive pattern from Winwick Mum which has been created especially for us at The Yarn Cafe and using West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-ply. A plain colour works well with this pattern.
These socks might look like a series of complicated cables but the knots are surprisingly simple mock cables which run from the top down to an Eye of Partridge heel flap and then on down the foot to the Eye of Partridge toes.
People might wonder how you've made them - but of course, a magician never reveals their secrets ...

A lovely pattern from Winwick Mum. I had my doubts whether I would be able to move on from the basic sock pattern which I can do off by heart now. However this is a straightforward easy to follow introduction to a patterned sock. Clear instructions and knits up quickly with an easy to remember pattern.
Really love this knotty sock pattern and will be knitting it soon.
