Originally a summer mystery knit along,
Beach Chair Socks is a fun project sure to keep you engaged and excited to knit, as although the design uses the same colors and stitches in both socks,
THE SOCKS ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
No worry about second-sock syndrome!
For this reason, it is not encouraged to knit two socks at a time, unless you plan to knit two pairs. Two separate sock patterns are included in the design.

The pattern is perfect for a new sock knitter
(experience with double-pointed needles is required) and is also fun for an advanced knitter as the colors and stitches change often.

The socks are knit in the round, cuff down, and directions are written for double-pointed needles; however any technique can be used by an experienced sock-knitter who may prefer the magic loop method.

There is a little cable, lace, and other simple stitches, and an easy short row heel with both detailed written instructions and color charts.

You will need at least 100 yards of four colors:
One Neutral, one pop, one light tone and one dark tone.
