Fairground Socks

The ‘Fairground Socks’ are a simple lace fingering weight sock pattern. The stitch pattern has been developed specifically to show off self striping yarn to perfection! 

The ‘Fairground Socks’ were inspired by the feel of a traditional carousel ride. The undulating curves are created using our own modification to the much loved feather and fan stitch. The pattern includes two heel options.
