Aloe Sock knitting pattern - digital or hard copy


The Aloe Socks are designed to keep your feet nice and toasty. The pattern uses two-coloured dip stitches, a technique that looks hard, but is actually easy to get to grips with. The extra yarn this method uses creates even more squish and warmth.

The socks are knitted from the cuff down, with a heel flap and gusset, and rounded toe shaping.

If you make these socks, it would be great to see them on Instagram - #AloeSocks #FayDHDesigns @faydhdesigns

Please note that this doesn’t apply to my hard copy patterns, which remain priced at £5 and come with an automatic digital download.

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating

This product was originated by me at Fay Dashper-Hughes Designs.  This pattern is printed by me on paper that is manufactured in the UK, using wind power and 100% recycled post-consumer fibre.

Postage and Packaging

You can read all about P&P here.

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
