There is nothing more magical than walking into the darkest, often scariest looking part of the forest, and discovering the ground is covered in bright, happily growing toadstools. Charlotte wanted to recreate this magic and wonder with a pair of socks to help keep our feet warm on forest walks this Autumn. Owing to her long-term love of mushrooms, Charlotte thought it would be fun for us to knit socks decorated in toadstools from cuff to toe, and we completely agree!
Knit from the top down with a twisted rib cuff, these socks have a no wrap short row heel and a stranded colourwork toadstool pattern that uses 3 colours and repeats and runs throughout the leg and foot.
