These cosy socks are knitted top down with a heel flap construction. The two-colour slip stitch fabric is worked by striping alternate rows using only one colour at a time - no colourwork knitting is required. Both the foot and leg length are adjustable, so we recommend periodically trying on these socks as you go to ensure the best fit. This pattern assumes you are familiar with sock construction.
