I think socks are one of the best projects for on-the-go summer knitting! I love the way they are both convenient and rewarding projects - perfect for afternoons in the sun.

Simple Summer Socks by Liz Pankratz
This free Ravelry pattern features a beautiful lacy pattern on the top, making them a delicate and cool pair of socks for those hot summer days! They’re made with a toe-up construction and a short-row heel; don’t fret about the lace being too challenging, it’s easier than it looks!
These ankle length socks are worked from the cuff down and feature a beautiful cable and mesh pattern. I love how fun they look in a bold colourway - I think they’d be fabulous in my Electric Mint or I Think We’re Alone Now colours.
Rose City Rollers Littles by Mara Catherine Bryner
A playful variation on the popular Rose City Rollers pattern, these roll top socks are a great pattern for beginners and come in six sizes for the whole family! The stripes add a bold pop that you can’t miss.
These short and sweet socks feature a lovely arrow cable, a nod to their name. Ash Alberg shares that “Taygete was the sister best known for her companionship with the goddess artemis, and is in fact often attributed to being the golden doe accompanying the huntress on her journeys.”
