Champagne Tower Socks are made from the top down, with a short-row heel, and were inspired by watching a ‘how do they do that?’ TV programme that included the proper way to pour champagne down a tower of champagne glasses! I love the idea of champagne and froth carrying on down the sock in softly undulating and luxurious stripes! A gentle froth topping some over-the-top twisted rib – the epitome of luxurious ribbing in my eyes!

Please be aware that the yardage recommended is just for one of the stripe colours - you will need the same for the other colour.
