If you’re a Raveler who belongs to a sock knitting group, you’ve probably seen these shoes already.
Aren’t they cute? I couldn’t resist the moment I saw them posted. These are Skechers Cali “Surfer Girl” (Style 36893). I initially ordered a pair in Clear, but exchanged them for Smoke. (The white insoles in the Clear variation really bothered me, so I knew I had to send them back lest I never wear them.) They are also available in Pink and Blue, although last time I looked, the Blue was sold out. Oh, and I see they’re currently on sale!
The socks are a new design I did exclusively for Roxanne of Zen Yarn Garden. I’m really excited about them. The yarn is lovely to work with, and it was a fun challenge to create a short, lacy sock design that worked well with the sport-weight yarn.
The stitch pattern is very small and easy to memorize; and I continued part of the pattern downward on the heel flap and along the sides of the toe. The pattern is available in PDF format and can be purchased for download at Zen Yarn Garden. I hope you like it! :)
