Linea de la Playa

I cast on for this pair of socks when I was in Mexico. Because of its south-of-the-border origin I wanted a Spanish name for the pattern. The movement in the stitch pattern makes me think of the movement of the waves on the beach I could see from my room. Keeping both those things in mind I pulled up the online translator, and played a bit before I hit on something that flowed well: Línea de la Playa, which is Spanish for “line of the beach” or as we would say in English “shoreline.” Perfect. Pattern written in three sizes.
