This listing is for a digital pattern download. You will not receive a physical item.

This stitch pattern, reminiscent of a flock of birds in flight on a summer day, adds just enough interest to an otherwise mindless, relaxing pattern, perfect for speckled, tonal, or lightly variegated yarns. These socks are worked toe up with a star toe and a short row heel. Patterning is only on the instep and the front of the leg, leaving plenty of Stockinette stitch to keep your needles flying.
