I was binge watching “Vikings” on the History Channel and the scenery is gorgeous, especially the waterfalls. I discovered that those scenes are filmed at Powerscourt Waterfall, which is Ireland’s highest waterfall. These socks are inspired by the falls, with the lace panel cascading down the side of each leg like the water, flanked by small cables that remind me of the little streams branching off on either side of the falls. Because the panels are on the outside of each leg, there are instructions for both right and left socks.

Two sizes are given, but the pattern circumference is adjustable by adding/subtracting from the stockinette portion on either side of the lace panels. The leg length is flexible and can be worked to the knitter’s preference.
