387 Sunny Day Socks
Three wonderfully cheery colors are worked in two traditional sunwheel Fair Isle patterns on these vibrant and rewarding socks. Since the stranded colorwork can make the fabric less stretchy than stockinette, we recommend choosing the size that matches your foot width, or the larger size if it falls in between.
