The clairdelune socks are inspired by the full moon views on arctic spring evenings.

They are knitted top-down and in the round, featuring a stranded colourwork motif throughout. The heels are knitted using the afterthought heel technique. You can choose to “mismatch” your socks as shown in the photos or knit two identical socks. It includes sizes for children, teens and adults.
