This sock pattern combines two amazing things - fair isle knitting and foxes! Can it get any better? The socks are really warm, as they are knitted with two strands of yarn. They were specially designed for long cozy evenings, when extra warmth is so much appreciated. The socks are knitted from the top down with a fish lips kiss heel. Decreases are added at the transition to the ankle for a more comfortable fit. There are directions for stitch distribution both for the magic loop and for DPNs. Pattern contains slightly different instructions for the right and left sock at the heel part. This places the transition column of fair isle stitches at the beginning of each round on the inner side of legs.
