These vintage-style socks are named after the little-known children’s book, ‘By a Silver Stream’. My father loved this novel as a child, and kept it into adulthood to share the delight with his own children. The book, one of a series by Elleston Trevor, is about the everyday lives and adventures of some very cute woodland creatures. To this day I smile to remember the two over-enthusiastic and argumentative mice!

The socks begin with a provisional cast-on with waste yarn that is later removed, resulting in a double-layered foldover cuff.
