September Featured Pattern and Knit-Along: Ar Lan Y Môr Socks

 Alright, we're just starting into fall, the nights are getting a bit cooler (thank God!) and, occasionally, I'm needing to wear socks again, not just sandals!

So, in celebration of the wearing of handmade socks again (I delight in whenever I can wear my knits!)  the Ar Lan Y Môr Socks are 50% off for the month of September!   

someone wearing a pair of fingering-weight socks; knit in striping yarn that goes from blue to grey. The socks have a subtle lace pattern.

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’. These socks are knit from the cuff down, the heel is a heel-flap and gusset, and the toe is seamed by grafting. 

This pattern has written instructions, and the stitch pattern is both written and charted. This pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software. This option includes only the written instruction.

You can buy the pattern through Etsy, or in my Web Shop, the discount is available on both platforms.  It's also on sale over on Ravelry, as well!

Now, onto the Knit-Along!
