This pattern was born when I realised that I needed more short socks to wear with summer outfits. I love making socks but hate the usual method of picking up stitches as part of making a heel. With that in mind, I decided to design a pattern that was easy to knit using just increase and decrease stitches to form a heel. I hope you enjoy knitting these socks as much as I enjoyed designing them! I’d love to see your photos of your Whinfell Socks, you can use the hashtag #whinfellsockskal to share them on Instagram.
