Exmoor Slipper Socks – by Emily Foden
These cosy slipper socks are knitted with two strands of Exmoor Sock 4ply held together. Our sample uses two different shades, creating a playful marl. Stripes in the cuff as well as the heel and toe are knit in solid colours for contrast. The same colour could easily be used throughout for solid socks, or two shades with more contrast to create a bolder marl effect. The simple, top-down construction of these socks makes them quick and fun to knit; great for a beginner sock knitter!
