I Found Pearls in the Seaweed Socks

The colourway name of this yarn, Pink Pearl, instantly made me think of the ocean since that’s where saltwater pearls are found. And when I think of the ocean, I think of seaweed.

For these socks, I paired two cables. One is representative of seaweed & the other is lots of pearls stacked on top of each other.

So grab your yarn and your needles, and cast on your socks. You might find a pearl in the seaweed! Happy Knitting!

These socks are knit using the magic loop method (although the purchaser could easily adapt it for two circulars or double points).

This pattern includes toe-up and cuff-down instructions.

The knitter needs to be comfortable with the following techniques: knit, purl, knit through the back loop (ktbl), knit two together (k2tog), M1L, M1R, slipped stitches, slip slip knit (ssk), cables, and wrap and turns (W+T). Instructions for all these techniques are included in the pattern. In addition, a video tutorial for the shadow wrap technique of W+T for short rows has been recorded by the designer.

This pattern includes instructions in both written and chart forms for 56 stitch, 64 stitch, and 72 stitch socks.
