These simple stripy socks are perfect for sock knitting newbies: start at the toe with Judy’s Magic Cast On (find tutorials online or in Knitting’s last sock supplement, free with Knitting 168, June 2017), work your sock in helical stripes (see page 14), work a stretchy cast off and then finish with a simple afterthought heel (see page 20). These socks are named after the Devon home of John Arbon’s mill, where the company spins its Exmoor Sock Yarn from the fleece of local sheep breeds.
