Anyone who knows me will tell you that it was quite a while since I was at school. Despite this, I still have one pair of socks from my school uniform that have survived all these years and are still in regular use. I thought it might be nice to recognise their longevity and recreate them.
These toe-up socks feature a simple pattern of twisted stitches, along with a reverse stocking stitch gusset and an Eye of Partridge heel flap.Sizes
