The Morwenstowe Socks are a pair of two-colour socks featuring a lace and cable design, with instructions in three sizes.


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.


FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 
Sock Foot Circumference: 
18 (20.5, 23) cm / 7 (8, 9) inches


Height from sole to cuff: 
20.5 cm / 8 inches (adjustable)


Foot length is adjustable


Sock should be worn with 2.5 cm / 1 inch negative ease to ensure a good fit
