These lovely knitted socks, designed for men and women, are generously sized so that you can easily pull them on over other socks when you want to be out and about in your wellies or just curled up in front of a nice warm fire — they also make very handsome festive stockings.
The Baltic Star Socks are knitted in the round with five needles, from the top down with a short rib cuff, peasant (or ‘after thought’) heel and a wedge toe. The simple charted colour patterns and striking Baltic star motif are worked after the knitting has been completed using duplicate stitch. Simple French knots decorate the star pattern and there is a decorative braided tassel.
