THE STORY
Island Wood is a gorgeous retreat center on Bainbridge Island in Washington. It has such a special place in my heart that I had to create a simple, relaxing pattern to reflect the joy of my time at the retreat, mixed with beautiful yarns!

NOTES

  • These socks are worked from the cuff-down and feature a Fleegle heel. These socks are identical to one another; make 2 to complete a pair.
  • In the case of using double-pointed needles, the Front Needle is synonymous with Needles 1 & 2 and the Back Needle is synonymous with Needles 3 & 4.
  • Instructions are given for smallest size with additional sizes in parentheses. When only one set of instructions is given, it applies to all sizes.
  • Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
  • This pattern is written for the Magic Loop technique. There are no charts.
