This fun sock pattern uses mosaic knitting and cables to create the Beach Ball stitch pattern on the front of the leg and top of the foot of the socks. Slipped stitches are used to create the colourwork pattern.

There is no stranded colour work and each row is knit using only one colour.

This sock features a heel flap with gussets and a rounded toe that is grafted closed with Kitchener stitch.
