Why Knot Socks Kit


We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make these lovely socks along with the pattern, a shadecard for one of our ranges and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!  

The Why Knot Socks pattern is designed by Sonja Bargielowska, one of our fab Mill Folk. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn. 

These socks are knitted top down, with optional stranded colourwork motifs on both the cuffs and feet…
