The Mermaid Avenue Socks incorporate a delightful stitch pattern
that mimics the scales on a mermaid tail. Easy to memorize
and interesting to knit, these socks can be worked up
in a variety of yarns, from solids to tonals, speckles, and everything
in between!

This pattern includes tutorials for the stitches used, as well as
YouTube videos that show how the stitches are made. At the end of the pattern, there is also a recipe page for knitting a Mermaid Fade.

According to Mermaid lore, these sirens of the sea sometimes make their way ashore and live on land for awhile. I like to think if there are mermaids among us, they would happily wear these socks to warm their feet!


Measurements are in inches (cm), measured around the circumference of the ball of your foot.

S 7” (17.75cm) M 8” (20.25cm) L 9” (23cm) XL 10” (25.5cm)


40 sts over 4 inches in pattern, knit in the round and blocked


• One skein of sock yarn (approximately 430 yards/393 meters). You may not need to use the entire skein, depending on how long you make your socks. Please note that this stitch pattern uses a little more yarn than a standard vanilla sock!

• US size 1 needles (36” or longer circular for magic loop), or DPNs, or a tiny circular, depending on how you knit socks.

• Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
