The Greel is a fictional character I created for Sock Camp. He is an evil, sea-dwelling creature that is eventually defeated by a team of unlikely heroes. But, don’t worry, this sock is a fun, fast knit that works well with both solid and variegated yarns. You’ll love watching this lacy rib pattern come together!
