Pattern Description:

She's off to her favorite hideaway for some R&R, in cozy comfort. Her prettiest ski sweater is just the thing to wear when she's all curled up by the fire after a day on the slopes. With their matching fair isle pattern, her socks coordinate perfectly with her DB Ski Sweater. These sporty socks even have little, contrasting turned heels and toes. But don't panic! They are knit on 2 needles with seams or grafted sts located across the toe and seams up the inside leg.
