Patternfish - Cresting Waves Clog Socks - Designed by Dawn Brocco

Cresting Waves Clog Socks (Cuff Down)
Designed by Dawn Brocco

Knit in Cascade 220 (100% Peruvian Highland Wool - 220 yds/100 g) and Cloud 9 (50% Angora/50% Merino Wool - 109 yds/50 g)

Brocco: "These socks are worked in 2 Cascade Yarns - Cascade 220 and Cloud 9. But consider Cascade's Lana D'Oro or other worsted weight wool or wool blend yarn. The easy stitch pattern is a classic Faroe design and reminds me of waves coming into shore, then flowing back out again, so I chose sea and shore colors. The cables, too, add a seaside (rope) element. The pattern is in 3 sizes, with tips on adjusting fit." These are very warm and durable socks, with the 10-ply yarn worked at a snug tension.
