“I’VE NEVER known a man who can resist a pair of knitted socks, and if they’re Fair Isle socks, then that’s a bonus,” says designer Jean Moss. “This cosy pair is robust enough to wear either with or without shoes; the decorative striping in the heel does a good job of reinforcing it. For a less pronounced striped effect, swap the colours in the chart around to give a consistent background throughout, as in the second version.” Jean has used Rowan Felted Tweed Aran for a rustic-looking fabric and a warm feel.
