Bubble Stream is a playful sock that was designed for the Barking Dog Yarns April knitalong. The pattern is now available as a Ravelry download and here on The Daily Skein.

The little bubbles are made with mock cables that are fun to work, using just a slipped stitch and a yarn over. The mock cables alternate with a line of moss stitch to add a little interest in between. But the best part of this sock pattern is the gusset and foot.

Half of the gusset is patterned in the same mock cable with twisted stitches on either side for emphasis. This panel travels across the foot, ending at the opposite side just in time to start the toe.

Errata: The key was missing the symbol for “m1.” The current file has the correct key. In the instructions for the heel turn for both socks, Row 3 should read “Sl 1, p6, p2tog, p1, turn.” Row 4 should read “Sl 1, k7, ssk, k1, turn.”
