Spiralling stripes of eyelets decorate this sock design by Rhian Drinkwater. Knitted from the top down, they’ll be an interesting project for new sock knitters or anyone wanting to take the next step on from plain socks. Rhian has used a colourful bamboo blend called Wendy Happy.
“This pretty yarn has a silky-smooth feel and creates gorgeous socks,” says Rhian. “It’s less stretchy than wool, though, so keep checking the fit, and ensure you weave in the ends well.”
