Pattern is available on Etsy, Payhip, and Ravelry, and is available to download for Patrons!
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.
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’.
The sample is shown in a relatively standard sock yarn; with 75% Superwash Merino Wool, and 25% nylon. If you’re looking to substitute yarns, any wool or wool/nylon sock blend should work up well!
The lace stitch is both written and charted. This pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software. This option includes the written instruction.
