Toss another log on the fire and reach for your knitting as you snuggle deeper into your favourite armchair, wearing your warmest jumper, and plumpest socks.

Of course, they’re Eliza socks. Including rich quilting and cables for lush texture and a nod to deep-winter knitting traditions, and happy bobbles for … well, pure joy, Eliza socks are as delicious to wear as they are to knit.

Using DK yarn for extra warmth on the frostiest of days, Eliza socks fly off your needles. Any hint of second sock drama is quickly over when you realise you’re already racing down the leg and turning your heel.

Knitted from the top-down, with a heel flap and generous round toe, Eliza includes charts and written instructions and is the perfect pattern for knitters wanting warm feet in a hurry.
