Wisps of ocean mist swirl and twist across the waves and over the rocks, just like the cable pattern in this pair of socks. Two of the cables continue to the toe, while the others fade into the heel, much like the ocean mist when it touches the shore. Inspired by the beautiful scenery around Vancouver Island, this pattern provides a relaxing, yet interesting knit. And everyone needs a pair of classic cable socks, especially at the coast.
