I shouldn’t admit this, because it’s going to make at least a few of you deeply uncomfortable, but I find myself unspeakably fascinated with the strands of kelp and seaweed that cling tight to the rocks. They always look just the tiniest bit alien, especially the kinds with row after row of tiny air chambers (they help the seaweed float so it gets enough light to grow). This stitch captures a bit of that feeling but without any danger of something cold and slimy brushing against your ankle!

Just a quick word of warning, these socks absolutely will take more yarn than you might expect. The dip stitches are beautiful (and so much fun to do), but they do use up quite a bit of yarn. So if you have bigger feet, or if you like a tall leg on your socks, consider looking for a generous skein of yarn. And maybe unravel your swatch, just to be safe!
