Pattern description from Handknit Holidays: “These warm, soft his-and-her socks are ideal for romantic evenings by the fire. They’d make as heartfelt a gift for newlyweds as they would for a long-committed pair celebrating a landmark holiday season together. Although the two yarns with which they are made differ in fiber content, weight and construction, they look similar, as though they belong together, just as many couples do after spending many years sharing their lives.”
