“And suddenly with the wind came the noises-- the swishing of waves and the slap of water against the ship’s sides and the creaking and the over-all high, steady roar of air and water…”- The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The journey to Narnia begins with curling waves and blowing wind as three children are swept away to another world. This sock design will take you on an adventure of your own, mixing colors with a slip-stitch technique to create your own twists and turns. Worked from the top-down with only one color at a time, these socks mimic the appearance of stranded knitting. Using a simple mosaic repeat, you’ll sail along down the leg to a heel flap featuring the slip-stitch pattern. Slipped stitches continue through the foot to provide extra durability for your travels. Navigation is completed as you work a rounded toe, decreasing stitches to your destination… and a new pair of socks.
