Long declared the arch nemesis of crafters worldwide, only your fellow knitters will see the irony in knitting a moth motif into cozy handmade socks! Worked in a large 15-color palette, maintaining the color order is essential to keeping the gradient effect intact. Knit from the top down starting with a ribbed cuff, the Fair Isle motif appears only on the body of the sock before a wrap and turn short row heel is turned. Finished off using only the background color with kitchener stitch at the toes makes for quick work.
