Description: Just like the wavy lines that surround the San Diego coast, the slip-stitch pattern in this design surrounds these socks with wavy color pops! Visit your stash to find the yarn for this project - there are so many opportunities to mix or match the stripes, and to use those small balls you’ve been saving. This cuff-down sock design is written for four widths, so everyone can take a walk on the coast!

The pictured socks are shown in size Medium and are being worn by an adult female.
