The Golden Gate Bridge was on the horizon of my childhood, gleaming in my imagination.
I designed a simple Herringbone sock pattern that evokes memories of the cool fog of San Francisco rolling across the Bay, the iconic red arches veiled in grey. Featuring a German Short Row Heel, quick stitch pattern, and simple Knit-Front-And-Back toe, these socks are a breeze to knit. Step out into the world of sock knitting with confidence and experience the quiet adventure of creating.
