These socks were designed for my sock pal during a Hogwarts Sock Swap. The focus is a lace pattern that curves back and forth like a snake, perfect for Slytherin House! When the even rounds are omitted, the texture on the lace panels is emphasized, and resembles snakeskin.
This pattern has been worked with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock (green or gray socks), and with Zen Yarn Garden Squooshy (pink-purple); any sock or fingering weight yarn will work, about 100g is required. Although the instructions are written for double-point needles, experienced Two Circulars and Magic Loop knitters should be able to adapt easily. The lace pattern works beautifully whether you knit it cuff-down or toe-up.
Available in three Women’s sizes – Narrow (aubergine), Medium (pine), and Wide (pewter). The PDF pattern instructions can be purchased and downloaded through Ravelry (even if you are not a member).
