Spiralling Socks eBook

Spiralling Socks eBook

  • £5.00


Two knitting patterns in one pdf. This eBook includes the Alcombe and Cutcombe sock patterns. Both designs use a combination of helical stripes and slipped stitches to create a spiralling pattern. The Cutcombe socks use an afterthought heel, allowing the patterning to continue to the toe, whereas the Alcombe socks use a standard heel flap with a plain stocking stitch foot.
