First: Be sure to grab your pattern here.
The Mermaid Avenue Socks incorporate a delightful stitch pattern
that mimics the scales on a mermaid tail. Easy to memorize
and interesting to knit, these socks can be worked up
in a variety of yarns, from solids to tonals, speckles, and everything
This pattern includes tutorials for the stitches used, as well as
YouTube videos that show how the stitches are made. At the end of the pattern, there is also a recipe page for knitting a Mermaid Fade.
According to Mermaid lore, these sirens of the sea sometimes
make their way ashore and live on land for awhile. I like to think if there are mermaids among us, they would happily wear these socks to warm their feet!
