f you have ever had the dubious pleasure of walking on a stone floor in bare feet of a winter’s morning, you will understand the value of a good pair of wool socks. This cosy pair will provide extra stylish insulation inside a slipper or inside a boot for venturing into the great outdoors.

These are top-up with a wedge toe and an afterthought heel. The socks are identical (these can be knit two at a time easily if you like to work this way as I did - instructions are for one at a time)

Pattern can be bought separately or as part of the Walk Warmer ebook of winter socks, giving you a substantial discount over buying the patterns separately
