The socks were designed during a knitting weekend in the town of Alcester in Warwickshire, hence the name. They are worked toe-up with a flap-and-gusset heel. The lace pattern is charted and worked all around the leg up to the pretty picot edging.
The scarf was designed especially to use the wildly coloured sock yarn that looks so beautiful in the skein but is difficult to match with a pattern that will allow both the yarn and the pattern to show off their full potential. The garter stitch body makes it a very quick and easy knit and the edging adds a fun stripey touch.
