This toe-up sock pattern was designed when I happened to stumble across a beautiful skein of yarn named “Fish Bath”. I immediately fell in love with the colorway, so I wanted to design something that would evoke happy times in my life. I chose a stitch pattern that, to me, resembled the little water waves that swirl and whirl that the minnow make in the water when we are fishing in the Port. These socks remind me of many fun times going fishing and catching fish!

The pattern is written for DPNs referring to Needles 1-4. You can accommodate it for Magic Loop or 2 circulars.

NOTIONS: Stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round, A tapestry needle for weaving ends.

PATTERN STYLE: The pattern contains written as well as chart instructions. There is a key and full abbreviation list included as well.

DIFFICULTY: Advanced Beginner: Yarn over, increases and decreases, sock construction.

YARN: This pattern is better suited for solid or lightly tonal yarn to show off the detail of the mock cables. They may get lost in a heavy variegated yarn, but a subtle variegation should be okay.
