Drumlanrig, Scotland was once the location of a Roman fort, now situated within the grounds of a grand manor house, Drumlanrig Castle.

These socks are designed to play nicely with self-striping yarn, and they knit up surprisingly fast. It is also nicely suited for the discerning male sock recipient, or those who appreciate a more minimalist design. This pattern is great for TV knitting!

About sizing: the stitch counts for the three available sizes are 60, 68, 76 sts. The smallest size fits a 7.5-8-inch diameter foot nicely.

The Aston Project was named in honour of Prof. Mick Aston, a regular member of Channel Four’s Time Team. As I watched episode after episode of Mick wearing all sorts of stripy jumpers, gloves and hats, the concept for the project came to me: sock patterns made just for self-striping yarn!

Drumlanrig was featured on Time Team in season 12, episode 4: Fighting on the Frontier.
