I loved the idea of a sock pattern that would reflect the rocks and the castles of stone in Cornwall so I used a yarn that is as close as I could come to the cold gray stone that is found there and a pattern that somewhat resembles the cobblestone walls that are still present today.

These stunning socks can now be paired with a little version for those special tiny feet in your life! Check out the Tiny Tristans, recently released in conjunction with What else Would Madame Defarge Knit?
