The Morwenstowe Socks are a pair of two-colour socks featuring a lace and cable design, with instructions in three sizes.
We recommend using some of our 4-ply yarns such as Tamar Gwindra 4-ply. You may also like the Morwenstowe Socks Project kit which includes a copy of the pattern and two skeins of Tamar 4-ply in two contrasting colours.
These socks are worked from the top down with a heel flap construction. The lace and cable motif is mirrored on each sock, so you will end up with a symmetrical pair. Designed with a princess sole – the purl stitch fabric is on the outside – these socks can be worn by even the most sensitive feet. Both the foot and leg length are adjustable, so we recommend periodically trying on these socks as you go, to ensure the best fit. This pattern assumes you’re familiar with sock construction.
Though these socks use only a small amount of the contrast colour, they are designed as a companion piece to the Gwindra Shawl, so you can make the two projects using only 3 skeins of yarn by reversing the main colour and contrast colour.
