I’m so pleased with these finished socks! The pattern is Pomatomus by Cookie A and it can be found at Knitty.com (free — love free). The 1×1 rib has the effect of fans or scales and my friend Ana suggested that I should rename these my Kelpy socks, after the selkie mer-people of Scottish and Irish folklore (did anyone else see “The Secret of Roan Inish“?!?). The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino and I used 2.5mm needles. The blues and greens of the yarn just accentuate the fanning and the feel of it is yummy soft and comfortable!
