You like patterns that knit up quickly? Check!

You believe that dropping stitches could be a design feature? Check!

Well, these socks could be for you! The drop stitch pattern reminds me of water running down a slow moving stream, meandering around rocks that are in the way. The yarn works really well with this pattern, but don’t restrict yourself to blues and greens :o)

The pattern is a fun, quick to knit, 20 row repeat. It is quite a loose fitting sock as extra stitches are used and dropped. Stitches should only be counted after rounds 9, 10, 19 or 20.

It is a top down/heel flap design.

My thanks to MarciaViola, Akinna78, tinker37, GuapaM and keikihula who kindly test knit this pattern offering me vital sugfestions and feedback - thank you so much!
