    Sketch the design for your skyline around the top of the socks using an air erasable pen. You're basically just drawing rectangles of different heights, some with slanting or diamond roofs and some with masts. Remember the socks will stretch when you wear them, so you'll want to sketch the skyline a little smaller and thinner than you want.

    When you're happy with the design, stitch around the outline using black elastic thread. Keep your stitches nice and tight, so that they sit flat on the socks and don't pucker. The thread will stretch when you put the socks on.
