    • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

      These socks feature a solid main color with a self-striping contrast color. The contrast color flows along the fabric with slipped stitches and cables, creating a meandering textured effect like water flowing through a stony stream. These socks are knit top-down with a garter stitch heel flap. Instructions include notes to help customize the length of the leg and foot. Enjoy the relaxing rhythm of these toasty warm and textured socks!

      Size 3 shown on a US 13 / EU 47 size foot with an actual foot circumference of 10″ / 25cm.

      Socks are designed to fit an actual foot circumference of 7.5 [8.5, 10, 11]″ / 19 [22, 25, 28]cm. The socks are designed to fit with negative ease. Choose a size with a finished foot circumference measurement that is approximately 1″ / 2.5cm smaller than your actual foot circumference, so that the sock will fit nice and snug on your foot.

      The lengths of the cuff, leg, and foot are easily customizable by knitting more pattern repeats for a longer leg or foot or fewer pattern repeats for a shorter leg or foot.
