β€œIt was as if a wall stood up between them and the sky… Then up came the sun, and at its first rising they saw it through the wall and it turned into wonderful rainbow colours.” - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The Narnian sailors arrive at the end of the world to find a Silver Sea filled with lilies and sunlight refracted into rainbows by a giant wave. These top-down socks use stranded colorwork to create their own fractal design. Pair your favorite Countess Ablaze variegated with a semi-solid for stunning results. The design is anchored by a solid cuff, heel, and toe, while clever details such as an eye-of-the-partridge heel and a unique gusset make these socks as fun to knit as they are to wear. This flashy footwear is ready to travel to the end of the world… and beyond!
