When cycling along Hadrian’s Wall in the North of England one summer, my kids suddenly spied wild raspberries growing in a hedgerow. We stopped in the sunshine to pick and eat a few, and just thinking about it now brings a smile to my face.

Celebrate wild raspberries - the ultimate forager’s treat - with this brand new sock design. My Wild Raspberry Socks combine colourwork, a little texture and gorgeous hand dyed yarns from Eden Cottage. The result is a beautiful pair of socks that are just as interesting to knit as they are fun to wear. Grab a skein of sock yarn and a coordinating miniskein and cast on today!

This pattern has been professionally tech edited, for a stress-free knit.

Construction
These socks are knit from the top down, with colourwork and textured stitches following the ribbed cuff, and also feature a striped heel flap. The heel is durable because of the slipped-stitch pattern, and fits well, particularly on feet with high arches. A mirrored colourwork chart is worked on the ball of the foot and then the toe is worked in the contrast-colour yarn.
