Update June 2024.
For some odd reason the chart of this sockpattern is not longer linked in the library. You can find it by the Dutch version of the pattern. I’ll add it to the English instructions asap.

End 2009, the members of the Yahoo-group ‘’Sokken Breien’’ (knitting socks) walked their sock path. A mystery sock, with instructions in four separate parts that eventually formed the complete pattern. These adventurers didn’t know at the start where the path would lead them…

One of the travelers chose the name ‘’Aragorn’’ for this sock, Aragorn being one of the nine members of the Fellowship in the book ‘Lord of the Rings’

He completes his ordeal with drive and determination, Modest in spite the grandeur of his true being. The quiet and simple traveller, an almost invisible being who accomplishes a hard and testing path in a very special way.

Inspiring, full of hope and inner light

Aragorn is a sock with unexpected elements. You leave the common path, follow the trail and trust the clues. Eventually you will arrive at your destination: you knitted a unique sock.

Needed skills and properties
• Be familiar with knitting socks
• Be familiar with reading charts
• Be curious and adventurous
• Link and combine clues

Errata: I missed a sentence in translating my pattern.
Rnd 4 in the Cast On instructions must be read as followed: slip the knit stitch purlwise with yarn in back, purl one

Please mind this pattern is available in Dutch and English. The charts are not included in the pattern description but a seperate file. Both files are needed!
