Inspired by the beautiful Michigan lake shores, these socks are reminiscent of the gentle waves lapping at the sandy shore. The undulating lace pattern follows down the foot of the sock with the toe worked in a star pattern. The lace pattern is simple enough for beginning lace knitters and is easy to memorize.

NOTE: I had about 12” of yarn left (350 yd skein) after working both socks. I did the full 4 pattern repeats for the leg and knit a 9” foot. If you have larger feet, you may want to be sure you get at least 400 yds of sock yarn.
