This sock pattern takes its inspiration from one of my favorite British TV shows, “Doc Martin”. With quirky characters, beautiful scenery, and engaging story lines, it’s a funny and charming program.

This pattern was designed for the May/June 2017 mystery KAL in the Solid Socks group on Ravelry.

Clues will be released on May 1, May 8, May 15, and May 22. After the KAL, the pattern will be released in one document, and proper pictures and tags will be added to the pattern page.

There are four sizes available for this sock: 56, 64, 72, and 80 stitch counts. The pattern is of average stretchiness, so whichever of those sizes usually works for you is what you’ll want to knit. One skein of yarn should be enough for most sizes, unless possibly you’re knitting for very large feet.
