The pattern for these socks was originally inspired by an old Russian cross stitch pattern. A patterned yarn was chosen for one of the colours to give the impression of the colour changes found in traditional Fair Isle knitting patterns. The second sock reverses the order of the main and contrast colours. This is found in some North Atlantic knitting traditions, and is referred to as “Summer/Winter” or “Day/Night”. Perhaps this reversal of colours reflects the long summer days, and long winter nights of the region, as the names imply.
