A simple and fun sock pattern worked from the cuff down with a short row heel and a rounded toe.

I have given instructions for 3 sizes and the pattern to be worked in magic loop, but you may use what ever method of sock knitting you prefer.

The stitch texture is a simple two row repeat. The columns of knit stiches create little ‘v’s down the sock, which reminded me of fish tails. The garter stitch bumps create a wavy texture which reminded me of the sea and waves

I hope you have as much fun knitting this as I did and if you have any questions please feel free to message me!
