You can get 15% off these socks if you have bought the Jacques Cousteau shawl previously (either individually or as part of the Scientist II collection) or buy it at the same time as these socks. This discount will run from 1/10/2016 to midnight on 1/17/2016.
Based on my Jacques Cousteau shawl pattern, these highly textured socks work up beautifully with lots of details. A patterned band makes up the cuff and a matching band at the toe. In between there is a section of several cabled/textured stitches reminiscent of a fisherman's sweater. These symmetrical socks are worked cuff-down, but could easily be converted to toe-up if that's what you like. They could also easily be worked two-at-a-time.
If you like this pattern, you may also like the [Cousteau hat pattern].
