It’s a warm and languid summer afternoon. The sun is high in the sky as you unwind at the water’s edge. It’s been a well-earned holiday and you are settling into relax-mode with your favorite beverage and the company of good people. You pick up your needles, armed with an indulgent sock pattern and ease into the rhythmic flow of stitches as your worries lighten and slip away with the passing of each completed row.

This pattern was designed to be simple and soothing in nature, with a shorter leg and minimal stockinette heel perfect for accompanying your favorite pair of open-backed summer shoes.
