Beach hut socks are inspired by those little rows of wooden huts by the seaside in pretty pastels or striking primary colours.

Knit from the toe up with a little colourwork on the foot (the sea lapping the sand), a wrap and turn short row heel and some simple colourwork on the leg to represent the little rows of beach huts. Two sizes available ladies small & medium.

The heel and toe can easily be changed to your own choice. They are knit using the magic loop method but can be adapted to suit dpns.

The pattern has written instruction and charts for the colourwork.

Size: Ladies small (60sts), Ladies medium (72 sts) - can be adapted for other sizes
(Note: the larger stitch count is to accommodate the colourwork. The 72 stitch count equates to how a 64 stitch sock would usually fit.)
