Stand the Test of Time

Jo Torr Stand the Test of Time, toe-up textured sock

Pattern: £4.50 (+ VAT)

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.

Instructions for the pattern are both charted and fully written out so you can choose which you prefer.
