Nevis is a Caribbean island near St. Kitts that historically was part of the sugar industry in the eighteenth century. Time Team spent two episodes investigating the estate of a sugar plantation, the related slave village, and the location of an aboriginal settlement along the coast.

These socks feature a Strong-style heel. Designed to play nicely with self-striping yarn, they knit up surprisingly fast. A gentle chevron provides interest, without restricting the fabric of the sock.

Note about the heel increases: you will have an odd number of stitches between the markers during the heel increases. Don’t worry about this, the stitches will be rearranged in the heel turn!

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!

Nevis was featured on Time Team in season 6, episodes 12 and 13.
