The Talland Bay socks are worked from the toe up. I recommend using the Turkish cast on (also known as Eastern cast on) in the pattern as it's my favourite but any other toe up cast on such as Judy's Magic Cast On can be used.
Talland Bay feature a lacy rib pattern that runs up the leg and the top of the foot. Unlik some toe up socks, these socks have a proper gusset and heel flap. The socks come in 2 sizes and foot length can be adjusted to suit the recipient's feet.
There are other socks designed by other brilliant designers in this collection too. You can see the whole collection and purchase the pdf booklet here. The booklet will also be available in print from your favourite Artesano stockist soon.
I blogged about the shawls i designed for this collection yesterday and tomorrow I'll talk about the garment I designed. There'll also be a competition to win some fab Artesano Definition sock yarn. So don't forget to come back tomorrow.
