The socks feature a simple slipped stitch pattern at the cuff that brings to life the places where mountain, sky and sea meet. Although the colorwork looks complex, it’s easily created with slipped stitches and is designed for beginning sock knitters.
The pattern name, Hiirnaqtuq, is Inuvaluktun (or Inuit) for something sweet.
