Pattern Description:

I love the look of Fair Isle but not the turtle pace I have in Fair Isle knitting. I starting playing with crochet stitches and fell in love with the look and feel of the front post single crochet. When using a self-striping yarn you get a lovely Fair Isle look! These socks are very warm! The pattern is easily memorized. They are toe up socks with an afterthought heel. No need to worry about short row shaping! For the intermediate crocheter.
