The Ar Lan y Môr (Welsh for ‘by the seaside’) Socks were inspired by the ripples of seaweed and other water plants that grow just below the waterline of many lakes, rivers and seas around the world, as well as the imagery of the Welsh folk song of the same name – flowers and grasses rippling beside the sea.

Pattern Notes:

The garter and stockinette stitch lace gives the socks some stretch without being too snug on the leg. The leg and foot length are both adjustable to the wearer’s preference, and the stitch pattern is complicated enough to keep some interest, while simple enough to be ‘television knitting’. These socks are knit from the cuff down, the heel is a heel-flap and gusset, and the toe is seamed with kitchener stitch.

The lace stitch is both written and charted; this pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software which includes the written instruction.
