From the pattern description: Knitted with red yarn, these simple yet fascinating socks alternate blue and white beads in a simple knit and purl pattern. The stripes of beads in the cuff suggest the U.S. flag proudly waving in the breeze.

Note: Also need size 8/0 seed beads in 2 colors and a bead stringing needle or similar for stringing beads onto yarn before knitting. There are easy instructions in the pattern for the order of stringing the beads so you end up with stripes.
