When my husband and I take the long drive from Kentucky to my Dad’s house in Delaware, we travel along the twisting and spiraling roads of West Virginia and Maryland. Most of our trip is spent going around and over mountains and then back down as we get into Maryland.

Mount Airy is the highway sign I always look for when we finally reach the Baltimore/Washington DC area. It means we’re only two hours away. Although we’re never in Mount Airy for an extended length of time, it’s always a comforting place after the long drive, and it means we’ll be in Delaware before we know it.

Mount Airy Socks are written for top-down and toe-up and has three sizes now available. The pattern works well with a rounded fingering weight yarn. The stitch pattern does a great job complimenting variegated and speckled yarns and adds a bit of interest without getting lost in the yarn.

A single skein of 100g sock yarn will be plenty to make these socks, so grab a skein of colorful yarn and enjoy this pattern!
