Bandelier Socks Kit
Bandelier Socks Kit
Create colorful socks featuring Southwestern motifs
Lisa Shroyer has revived her beloved Bandelier Socks design using a fresh color palette from the Brown Sheep Company's Nature Spun line. The stylized Southwestern motif and combination of oranges and blues in these socks reminded Lisa of a trip to New Mexico's Bandelier National Monument. Worked in seven colors, the stranded pattern is addictive and has that radiant cumulative effect of traditional Fair Isle.

- Bandolier Socks
- I received the kit in 8 days which was a phenomenal shipping time. I didn't read the product description carefully enough to realize that the instructions would be contained in the magazine sent with the beautiful quality yarns. My only disappointment is that the instructions and pattern motif look so so so difficult that I am afraid I may never attempt to knit these socks let alone complete a pair. I guess at some point, I will try but I am not hopeful I will be able to make these.(:`( (Posted on 11/3/2016)
