A warm summer day…..a fresh breeze blowing off the freshwater lakes as you hear birds and watch kites fly overhead. Off in the distance, the sailboats sail along and past the old lighthouses. As you walk along you can’t help but look at all the pebbles on the beach and collect a few special ones along the way. A relaxing feeling comes over you as you take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the freshwater beach.

This sock pattern is done in a pebble pattern that reminds me of those beaches. It is a great pattern for experienced and new sock knitters.
The pattern on the sock is easy to memorize but brakes up just making a plain vanilla sock.

This is sized in small medium and large.
