This wonderful top-down fairisle sock pattern is a design by Lisa K. Ross for Biscotte Yarns.
Sitting by the water’s edge, dreaming of days gone by and things to come, it’s easy to find peace. These socks are inspired by the serene moments enjoyed by the lakeside.
The rhythmic repeatable patterning creates satisfying results, while the cool colors and sparkle of Biscotte’s self-striping Lumos yarn produce dazzling results. You might not be able to get away from it all, but these socks are sure to capture the spirit of your own Lakeside Retreat.
