We crave socks that will never see the inside of a shoe. Socks for the cocktail hour, the end of a day, a pair of seriously pleasant footcovers. And, in the case of these Après-Anything Socks, we crave a clever construction that looks for all the world like Fair Isle but is actually a slip-stitch pattern that requires only one color in a row.

Stitch marker


The colorwork pattern is a slip-stitch technique in which only one color is used on each round; stitches of the previous color are slipped to form the two-color design.
