These cosy slipper-socks were inspired by a friend’s trip to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Drawing on traditional aran knitting, the simple mirrored cable motif represents fishermen’s ropes. The idea being that the means to pick yourself up, haul yourself in, and keep on going are right at your feet.

N.B. The socks are knit from the toe up using the “magic loop” method. The directions assume a basic knowledge of toe-up sock construction, including casting on and short-row heel construction.
