Beachcomer by RhyFlower Knits | Beachcomer is a whimsical sock pattern that features delightful cables, twisted stitches, and eyelets in a unified motif that runs along the instep, back of the leg, and is incorporated into the heel flap. Featuring Small Fish Yarn's absolutely stunning "Into the Mystic" colorway, the marriage between the motif and colorway makes my purple-loving heart soar.
