  • Seafoam - Socks

    Seafoam is a gorgeous pair of socks inspired by the feeling of waves reaching out, touching our feet, when we sit at the seashore.

    They are worked toe-up with a cable offset to the side of the foot and leg on a background of reverse stockinette.

    The entire sock is worked from the inside-out and flipped to the right side at the end; this way, you're only working soothing simple stockinetteinstead of reverse stockinette.
