The Gentle Waves socks were inspired by my shawl design of the same name, simply to make use of the yarn I had left over. The first pair were knit with a main colour and four different minis. In the second version, I used two colours but it could be knit all in one colour or using different colours for each wave.

The socks are knit in garter sections punctuated with gentle wave-like lace patterns. The pattern has a wedge toe and a Wrap and Turn short row heel, however the heel and toe could 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 lace panel. Please read all instructions before commencing pattern.
