These socks were designed for the Knit-Tea Retreat in Stratford-upon-Avon in June 2019. They are designed to use 20g miniskeins in five colours, although I think they would be perfect for using up the leftovers from previous sock projects. I wanted to create a stripy sock which was interesting both to knit and to look at. I have named them Avon Ripple socks because the pattern makes me think of the waves you see on a river, and the Avon river runs right by the Knit-Tea Retreat venue in Stratford.

• 5 x 20g of any Owl About Yarn fingering/4ply yarn which is suitable for socks (100g = 400-425 metres, 437-465 yards).
• 2.25mm/US 1 (or size with which you achieve the correct gauge) double pointed needles, or long circular needle for knitting the magic loop method.
• Three stitch markers; I’d recommend a moveable stitch marker or progress keeper for marking the start of the rnd.

Sizes: Small 56 sts (Medium 64sts, Large 72sts)
