This particular colourway is reminiscent of the ocean on a stormy day, and the stitch pattern rolls and breaks like choppy waves. The darkening sky is represented in the contrasting toes, heels, and cuffs.

Although the stitch repeat begins with a purl stitch, the pattern draws in like ribbing, and so laddering is not an issue. If you dislike beginning needles with purl stitches, consider using a 9” circular needle for this pattern. Because of the stretchiness, one size should fit most!

The first page of the pdf is description, pictures, and basic information about yarn and gauge; if you want to save some ink you’ll only need to print pages two and three for the actual pattern.

Happy knitting :)
