It is that time of year when summer vacations are coming to an end and we all must get back to our daily lives and routines. But with these socks, you can keep a piece of summer with you through the rest of the year, in remembrance of those carefree days spent lying on the beach. This pattern is begun at the center of the sand dollar and worked outward; then short-rows are used to complete the toe, before sailing through the remainder of a simple stockinette stitch sock.
