My horse Nixe may not look as delicate as the creature she was named after, but she certainly enjoys playing with water. When we go to the beach, while soft waves roll over the sand, she likes to stick her head into the sea and blow big bubbles. These socks are my tribute to her favourite game.

They are knit cuff down, with a short, easy to remember colourwork repeat that will keep you going just as well as striped socks would.

Materials:
approx. 50g of MC yarn
approx. 30g of CC yarn
2.5mm DPNs or size required to get gauge
2mm DPNs or size required to get gauge
tapestry needle

Any regular fingering weight sock yarn in solid or semisolid colours will work well. Using variegated or even speckled yarns might also lead to interesting results, but keep the contrast to the between the colours used next to each other high enough.

Sizes:
Sizes S (M, L, XL) with a stitch count of 56 (64, 72, 80). The foot circumference at the suggested gauge is 15,5cm (17,75cm, 20cm, 22,25cm). Length can easily adjusted by adding more repeats.

Gauge:
36 stitches/10cm
