Choppy Seas Socks (pay what you want)
This particular colourway is reminiscent of the ocean on a stormy day, and the stitch pattern rolls and breaks like choppy waves. The darkening sky is represented in the contrasting toes, heels, and cuffs.
Although the stitch repeat begins with a purl stitch, the pattern draws in like ribbing, and so laddering is not an issue. If you dislike beginning needles with purl stitches, consider using a 9” circular needle for this pattern. Because of the stretchiness, one size should fit most!
The stitch pattern is very stretchy, and should fit a range of feet from approximately 8.5" to 9.5" around.
Patons Kroy Socks 4-ply, or any fingering-weight yarn you like to get gauge. I've used FX Cadet Colours for the contrasting cuffs, heels, and toes, and Camo Colours for the main body of the sock. You'll need two balls of the main colour (MC) and one of contrast colour (CC). If you choose not to use contrasting yarn, you may need three balls of the MC depending on your foot size and how tall you like your socks.
32 stitches = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette.
Five US 2/2.75mm double-point needles or size needed to get gauge, darning needle to weave in ends.
