The Fanny Price socks are the second pair in the Mansfield Park Collection, based on Jane Austen’s classic novel.They are knit cuff down, in the round, with a heel flap and gusset and a wedge toe. An interesting lace row is knit between several stockinette rows, making this sock simple but addicting. A play on the usual slip stitch heel adds lots of texture and is a fun alternative to the usual heel-stitch heel flap. Written and charted instructions are included. All measurements are listed in inches and centimeters.
