Lynton & Lynmouth Socks – by Rachel Atkinson
Variations on a textured theme, the Lynton and Lynmouth sock pattern gives you the option to try different style socks and techniques; choose from the short Lynton sock which starts from a folded picot cuff and uses a short row heel and toe, or knit the longer legged Lynmouth sock featuring a heel flap and gusset with shaped toe.
