These socks are part of a pattern which includes mittens and a headband, as well as the socks.

About the Design:
These accessories are ideal on which to learn the fair isle technique, as the Tree of Life motif is used as an accent, rather than an allover pattern, as in the sweater.

I offer a headband pattern, as I don’t wear hats, but do love earmuffs! Socks and mittens finish the set.
