Designer Lara Neel has written a blog post giving some fascinating insight into her design process for the lovely Tootsie socks from our recent Spring & Summer issue.


Specifically, she talks about the inspiration for the clever afterthought heel

We love this!

Lara provides a fab and very helpful photo tutorial on the construction of the heel.

Very helpful.

If you’re interested in knitting this design, I definitely encourage you to check it out.

OnlyLouisehas already completed hers, and they are brilliant!
