A top-down, textured sock inspired by Tolkien’s character Elrond of Rivendell.
Skill Level: Intermediate; the sock includes basic top-down construction featuring a heel flap, short-row heel turn, and wedge toe; major cabling, textured stitches, and lots of charts. The ability to read a knitting chart is a must, although all symbols are clearly defined.
Materials: 1 set of US1 (2.25mm) sock needles (either DPN or Magic Loop), a cable needle (or the ability to cable up to 7 stitches without a needle), basic knitting gear such as a tape measure & scissors.
Yarn: Knitting this sock requires approximately 350-400 yds. (340-365 m.) of fingering weight yarn.
Two sizes are available, and they share the same charts with specific written directions to distinguish sizes. Ankle circumference is 7.5 (8.5, 9.5) inches or 19 (21.5, 24) cms. Calf and foot length are adjustable within the pattern.
Many thanks to my glorious testers: Laceknitting, Noteable Needle, Jessi, & Miss Dayo. You are much appreciated.
