A gorgeous club colourway, Captain Jack Sparrow and the warm glow of Captain Morgan's rum gave rise to this pattern design!

It is the second in a series of pirate-themed socks. The series itself was inspired by the Pirates Of The Caribbean movie and all its positive hoopla. Johnny Depp anyone?

The zig zag stitch pattern suggested the round about way that my favourite pirate captain might use to get home after the rum was gone ;-)
