The ‘Sherwood Socks’ are a design I created for my husband Dan and so they are full of all his favourite things. From lace and cables to the arrow heads down the back of the sock, this is a knit that will keep your brain engaged in the project!
As The design started to come together my thoughts were drawn towards Robin Hood. The delicate lace panel represents the lovely Maid Marion with the strong cables signifying Robin Hoods Arms.
