“What shall we do with the drunken sailor, early in the morning?” These nautical-themed socks were inspired by the Drunken Sailor song. They have a ‘drunken’ cable and some ‘rigging’ running down the front, and ‘whitecaps’ sloshing around on the back.

The cabled socks are knit from the top down with a heel flap and gusset. Right and left socks are mirror images of each other. Both written instructions and charts are included for the detailed sections of the pattern.
