A gorgeous club colourway, Captain Jack Sparrow and the warm glow of Captain Morgan's rum gave rise to this pattern design! This pattern was an exclusive design for the Zen String Yarn club and subsequently released to the public . 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 ;-) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cast on, cast off, knit, purl, knitting in the round GAUGE 28 sts = 4" in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Women / girls size 6-7 SUGGESTED YARN 350 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Claudia Hand Paints
