Faux Fair Isle Socks

These socks may look complex but they really are quite simple to knit! The Fair Isle sections are worked using self patterning sock yarn, so you are only working with two balls of yarn. But better still, the Fair Isle patterning is only worked on the foot and leg, where there is no shaping to contend with.The socks only use approx 25g of self patterning sock yarn, making this project great for using up the left over sock yarn you probably have.
