Sparrow Dance

Description

A deliciously squishy sock in six sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL) with universal appeal. The deeply textured fabric has a mesmerizing swirly motif with a few tiny cables, a little openwork, and stretchy comfort. Despite its complex appearance, the pattern is easy to work, making for a project that travels well and knits up quickly to keep or give as a gift.
