The Edward socks are the fourth pair in the Sense and Sensibility Collection, based on Jane Austen’s classic novel. Edward Ferrars is loyal, devoted, and full of honor, and these socks were designed to reflect his steadfastness.

They are knit cuff down, in the round, with a heel flap and gusset and a wedge toe. The textured rib pattern is created with only knits and purls, making these an easy knit that still engages the knitter. Written and charted instructions are included. All measurements are listed in inches and centimeters.
