This Seaweed Socks pattern was inspired by the seaweed in the artwork of my dear friend, Josh Talbot. 20% of all sales from July 1 - July 21 will be donated to The Histiocytosis Association of America in his honor.

I created this pattern with the intention of providing a thoroughly detailed pattern for beginners and an entertaining knit for intermediate knitters. The pattern is broken into 3 separate 10 page PDFs (one for each size) for your convenience. A thoroughly detailed Tutorial PDF is included as a 4th PDF, which includes 8 pages of picture tutorials, written tutorials, and links to exclusive video tutorials to help guide any ‘new to socks’ knitter through the pattern. A very thorough ‘true’ Afterthought Heel tutorial is included within this PDF.

The pattern includes 3 different sizes for the socks, charted and written directions, mirrored charts and directions, and a detailed Tutorial PDF. Trust me when I say - if you ever wanted to learn how to knit socks (or even an afterthought heel alone), this is the pattern for you!
