Crofter´s Socks are worked from top down in a simple colourwork pattern with a heel flap and gusset. The heel flap is extra reinforced by slipping every other stitch, which forms a decorative pattern. The socks are warm and soft and are perfect for pottering about at the croft, regardless of season.
