There’s a well-known episode of Doctor Who in which Rose Tyler is forced to be separated from the Doctor forever (sigh).

In this episode, she stands on beautiful, jagged rocks that border a smooth beach and the sea. I noticed, as I’m sure every knitter did, that Rose was wearing a gorgeous pair of knit fingerless gloves, but i’m 100% positive that handknit socks are also a necessity when you’re going to say goodbye to the Doctor!

These socks are both inspired by the stunning landscape of that scene – the jagged stones, smooth sand, and water - and also would have been perfect for Rose to wear!

Featuring a mirrored lace pattern, this sock is just a step above a “vanilla” sock - maybe a chocolate sock!

This pattern has two options: An afterthought heel, and a traditional heel flap and gusset. Make sure you download the correct file for the heel option you want.


Women’s S (US 5-6, EU 35-37) / 7”(18 cm) circumference
Women’s M (US 7-9, EU 38-40) / 8”(20 cm) circumference
Women’s L/XL (US 10-12, EU 41-43) / 9”(23 cm) circumference

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and tested for accuracy and clarity.

Some testers noted that they’d prefer a slightly tighter sock than as written, others loved it as is. I recommend you browse through pattern pages when choosing your size, and also to check your gauge closely.
